Reverend Henry T Wells, Founder/ Mel Wells, President
Founded in 1983 by Reverend Henry T. Wells, One Day at a Time Recovery, Inc. began as a residential peer counseling and substance abuse recovery support program. One Day At A Time Recovery, Inc. utilizes a community-based recovery model and support system, allowing people to recover in the same environment in which they became addicted. Recognizing that the addicted population suffers a variety of additional problems, over the past 25 years they have increased their scope and impact to address issues of HIV/AIDS and homelessness.
One Day At A Time Recovery, Inc. offers drug and alcohol services to individuals seeking shelter and support in their recovery efforts. While residing in one of the many recovery houses, individuals are eligible to receive a menu of services via ODAAT's many program services which can include; but are not limited to; case management, classes and workshops, HIV rapid testing, HIV Education and Prevention Services, Food Bank, outreach and special events.
