About Us

Addressing Substance Use Disorders Through Prevention

“Come As You Are” is a coalition for anyone affected by substance abuse. We are an inclusive community free from judgment.

CAYA started in early 2016 to help addicts and their families. We connect people to helpful resources, available treatments and support groups. We raise community awareness on substance abuse through local prevention programs in Fauquier, Culpeper, Rappahannock, Madison and Orange Counties.
