People who abuse alcohol and other drugs rarely stop to consider that they are also abusing their bodies, eroding their mental functioning, and impairing their ability to relate to other people. Bringing these issues into focus for those who are addicted to chemical substances represents one key thread in the complex fabric of the treatment and recovery processes at Canon Human Services.
Canon, through its Brown Scapular Program, has been helping people overcome chemical dependency and resolve drug-related problems since 1988. A non-profit community service corporation, Canon provides drug-free counseling and support services both on an outpatient basis and in a residential setting. Although residential services are currently available only to male
applicants, the outpatient is open to both men and women. Canon is located in South Central Los Angeles, an area where the need for its services is mostly readily apparent.
Canon’s mission does not end with a participant’s completion of the treatment program. We provide continuing support during the critical period following treatment through our outpatient services.
Inpatient treatment/recovery and supportive services at Canon Human Services are provided directly by the Brown Scapular Program staff made available through cooperating agencies, or by referral. Canon’s facility is accessible and its services accommodating to persons who are physically handicapped.
