Our History


As a leader in recovery solutions since 1981, The LCADA Way is a private, non-profit organization delivering innovative, outcome-driven programs. We utilize an individualized approach to addiction and mental health treatment, education, prevention and recovery support services for residents in Lorain, Medina and surrounding counties.

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

Rebranding to The LCADA Way highlighted our unique approach centered around Leadership, Compassion, Awareness, Dedication & Advocacy. This approach allows us to serve the community and help individuals on the road to wellness and recovery.

Leadership  |  Compassion  |  Awareness  |  Dedication  |  Advocacy

In November 2015, The LCADA Way expanded its services into Medina County with the opening of its second Wellness Center, The LCADA Way Medina Wellness Center. The Medina Wellness Center is a sister to the Avon Lake Wellness Center. Both centers are vibrant health care facilities for individuals and families to access services in a convenient and supportive atmosphere. The LCADA Way also has four additional service locations in Lorain County.

The LCADA Way is dedicated to transforming individual lives, families and communities suffering from alcohol abuse, substance abuse and behavioral health issues and developing itself as a Center of Clinical Excellence for education, prevention and treatment. To assist individuals on the road to wellness and recovery The LCADA Way provides a full array of behavioral health care services tailored to be gender and culturally appropriate based on individual client needs.

The LCADA Way is certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (ODMAS) and The Joint Commission.
