About CPR

Who is Columbia Pathways to Recovery (CPR)?

Columbia Pathways to Recovery is a RCO (Recovery Community Organization) – a grassroots group which grew out of the concern for a need for awareness, education, advocacy, and change in regard to the public health crisis of addiction.

We are made up of individuals who are in recovery from addiction, families and friends impacted by addiction, families who lost a loved one to addiction, and our friends and allies in the larger Columbia County community, including professionals, concerned community members, educators, medical and mental health specialists, community leaders, clergy, law enforcement, emergency rescue personnel, and addiction and recovery specialists, who have all joined together to solve our common problem around this public health crisis.

Our Mission Statement
We are a community committed toward building the many pathways to strategies and solutions for the addiction crisis in Columbia County, New York.

We invite any and all to unite with us in this endeavor to break the stigma, and join in our solution-focused efforts.

Meetings are held monthly in the Chatham High School library at 6 pm.
