What We Are

CLF is a Not-For-Profit organization whose primary goal is to provide a safe and comfortable place for people recovering from chemical dependency. When a substance abuser makes a commitment to become chemically independent, they are doing something that requires strength, motivation and endurance.

It is our belief that recovery is a lifetime process and these facilities are provided to the community voluntarily by the members and supporters of this objective.

What We Are Not

Cedar Lake Fellowship is not a “Club”. Rather it is a Not-For-Profit organization designed for the sole purpose of providing a meeting place for the recovering community. All members of the Board of Directors, and any committee members are strictly volunteers and are not paid or compensated in any way! Cedar Lake does contract a few specific outside services where the service would be difficult to coordinate with volunteers.

What Does CLF Do? 

Cedar Lake Fellowship provides a meeting place for recovering members of Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, Cocaine Anonymous, Al-anon, and all 12-step programs, as well as other recovery community organizations.
