Dave Cope

Dave is a member of the Lancaster South Club.  He graduated from Manheim Central H. S. and holds a B.S. degree from Bob Jones University.

Dave has been married for 48 years to my wonderful wife, Mary, and have four children and five grandchildren.

His first encounter with drug addiction was 20 years ago with their second oldest son.  Thankfully, they were saved the horrors then of what so many are experiencing today.  Dave and Mary’s is fully recovered from that condition now for nearly 20 years.

“The beginning of Recovery Works, Inc. was brought about by a tragedy that I experienced.  I began helping drug addicts in 2015. It was in 2016 that I saw the full horrors of the drug pandemic as I saw dozens of local youth dying from drug overdoses.  One, who was lost was especially close to us.  In that struggle we observed how difficult it was to get help for those seeking escape from this drug induced slavery.  It was then that we began the effort to bring a rehab to Lancaster County.  That is the beginning of our story to form Recovery Works, Inc.”
