History, Staff, and Vision
Our past...present...future

Lorain County Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services, Inc. (LCADA) was incorporated in July, 1981, the result of a merger between Lorain County Council on Alcoholism and Midway Health Center. Since the merger, we have been restructured and continued to expand our programs and services. In October 2015 we changed our name to The LCADA Way.

Currently, we provide a comprehensive range of alcohol and drug services for adolescents, adults, family members, and the handicapped, i.e. hearing impaired. These services include Assessments, Case Management, Individual and Group Therapy, Family Intervention, Education and Prevention Services.

We also provide Low-Intensity as well as Intensive Outpatient Services for adult men, women and adolescents. Residential Treatment is provided to women including their children. Aftercare Services are offered to all clients finishing Outpatient or Residential Treatment. The agency is certified by the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services (ODADAS).
