Women's Services
Our women's treatment services offer specialized programs designed exclusively for women and their special needs.
The KEY (Non-medical Community Residential)
This residential program, located in Lorain, provides a caring and supportive atmosphere for women and their children so that they regain control of their lives.  The KEY supports recovery from chemical dependency 24 hours a day, utilizing the 12-step recovery process.  The client's length of stay at the residential level depends on how quickly she progresses and meets the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug addiction Services (ODADAS) criteria for transfer and discharge to a lower level of care.  The average client might remain in the primary program for 60 days to 6 months.
Also as part of the program, The LCADA Way offers a
Children's Developmental Assessment whereby each child of a KEY resident is tested according to age-appropriate developmental standards. This assures that children of clients are also on-track to becoming healthy adults.
Women's IOP
Women's IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) is a comprehensive treatment approach for women.  During a client's stay in this program, she will receive a full rehabilitation program.  It consists of an initial analysis of the client's level of dependency, a learning discussion group, individual therapy sessions, family therapy sessions, and involvement with 12-step support groups.  Its goal is to facilitate the client's development of skills and tools that will permit her to remain abstinent and function well in all life areas.

The last phase of recovery is the AfterCare program, which serves as a support network for clients.  Women meet two times a week for 12 weeks.  The program helps women maintain their newly established abstinence, begin rebuilding family communications and trust, develop relapse prevention skills, and identify additional community/family support networks.
