The former Family Department of Community Recovery Resources, a nonprofit addiction rehabilitation group in Grass Valley, has changed its name to Mental Health and Recovery Services.

The name change reflects CORR’s expansion into dealing with co-occurring disorders, which happen when someone has both drug abuse and mental health issues.

The mental health issues a client may have could be as strong as diagnosed depression or bipolar illness, CORR Executive Director Warren Daniels.

Clients will receive group and individual psychotherapy and counseling, along with drug and alcohol abuse help. For more information or to ask for help, call CORR at 273-9541.
