The program philosophy of JACOA related to substance use/co-occurring disorder treatment and recovery support services is based on the following: (1) alcoholism and drug addiction are illnesses and are treatable (2) alcohol and drug abuse problems are spread through all sub-groups of the population and all socio-economic categories (3) a comprehensive program for co-occurring substance use and psychiatric disorders must be planned and operated to meet the specific needs of the area population and be both visible and accessible to all persons without regard to age, race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic level or other individual characteristics (4) a variety of treatment methods and approaches must be used and the program must be flexible in order to meet the treatment needs of each service recipient (5) continuity of care is essential to an effective alcohol and drug treatment services approach (6) a total needs approach is needed in the delivery of services to both the recipient and his/her family (7) treatment is geared toward enhancing the integrity and dignity of the individual served. Areas of service intervention include assistance with life skills development, education on the addictive disease and related recovery and therapeutic intervention with both group and individual counseling.  JACOA’s entire treatment program is based on a Twelve-Step model of recovery incorporated into a holistic approach, also incorporating  Hazelden’s evidence-based practice curriculums Living in Balance and Co-Occurring Disorders Program. Service recipients function in a twenty-four hour staffed treatment facility for re-socializing the individuals to constructive healthy behaviors and attitudes in preparation for community placement.
