Club Odyssey is a young adult clubhouse that provides a community-based, non-clinical setting for promoting long-term health and wellness. In short, it’s a drug-free safe space to socialize. 

Trained staff and volunteers are here to assist young people with finding needed support, as well as recovery from the many forms of addiction, including but not limited to substance misuse. Staff are available for one-on-one coaching, connecting you with community resources needed for success, and providing opportunities for young people to meet with peers their age in mutual aid group settings. The journey to finding help begins to by reaching out by phone, online message, or stopping by in person!

All programs and activities are free and open to members of the public ages 18-25, along with their family. Members are provided the opportunity to give direction to, as well as lead, scheduled events and programs.  Some examples are Boardgames – Videogames – Movie Nights Podcasting – Filmmaking – Outdoor Activities – Concerts and Arts & Crafts!
