About Jackson Area Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency

First established in 1964, the Jackson Area Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency, or JACOA, has grown from a single outpatient unit to offering a range of detox and substance abuse services from outpatient to residential treatment. Our staff is dedicated to meeting you where you’re at in the recovery process.

JACOA is a licensed substance abuse treatment program, offering evidenced-based treatment approaches and quality services. Whether you’re dealing with a long-term drug or alcohol problem or only have only been using for a couple months, the Jackson Area Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency can help you take back your life from the effects of addiction.

Treatment Options

The effects of substance abuse affect different people in different ways. During the detox stage, one person may require round-the-clock care to make it through the program, while another person may only require ongoing counseling and emotional support. Receiving the level of support you most need is critical to breaking drug and alcohol abuse cycles in your daily life.

The Jackson Area Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency offers two detox program types -an inpatient program and an intensive outpatient program- with each program providing different levels of treatment support.

Inpatient program treatment options include:

  • A live-in treatment environment with round-the-clock care and monitoring
  • Support group meetings
  • Drug education and counseling
  • Individual and group therapy

Our intensive outpatient program treatment options include:

  • Treatment sessions held four a days week from 6 pm to 9 pm
  • Relapse prevention training
  • 12 Step support groups
  • Wellness planning


While program rules and guidelines may seem formal and arbitrary, they’re actually in place to maintain a certain atmosphere of stability and structure, which is essential to the addiction recovery process. The Jackson Area Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency adheres to certain policy guidelines to help ensure your safety as well as create a treatment environment that promotes healing and growth.

As a general rule, the more intensive the program type the more strict the policies. Since JACOA’s outpatient programs allow clients to live at home for the duration of treatment, policy guidelines focus more so on program participation, personal conduct and accountability. As far as our inpatient program facility goes, policy guidelines include the following:

  • Must provide a photo ID upon admission to the program
  • Medications must be checked in
  • No phone calls allowed during the first two weeks
  • Incoming and outgoing mail is monitored

If you’ve had little to no success at trying to stop using drugs or alcohol on your own, Jackson Area Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency can provide the level of support you need to stop substance-using patterns in your daily life.
