We also offer specialized programs for pregnant women or those who have recently given birth. These programs include: rehabilitation, medical services, parenting training and coaching, vocational and educational services as well as assistance with supportive housing. Our Women’s Programs include:

Assessment Services

The KEY (Residential Housing)

The KEY is our residential facility located in Lorain. We provide a supportive and caring environment for women and their children as they work to regain control of their lives. The KEY helps women recover from substance use disorders 24 hours a day, utilizing researched based models of care and a 12-step recovery process. The length of treatment is based on how quickly the individual stabilizes and develops the recovery skills needed to ensure lasting success.

Children’s Program

Because we believe that concentrating on family is vital in the recovery process, we have designed developmental programs for children whose mothers are in treatment. We provide therapeutic childcare, which is designed to assess how well a child is functioning developmentally and how to identify and address any problems. Our goal is to ensure that these children remain on track to become healthy adults.

Family Programming

The LCADA Way Family Programming is offered as an open-ended educational support group. It is designed and conducted primarily for parents, spouses and other family members who are concerned about a loved one’s harmful use of alcohol or other drugs. The group is not a 12-step self-help group.

Day Treatment

The goal of The LCADA Way’s Day Treatment Program is to help our clients develop the support, skills and tools that will allow them to remain abstinent and recover from this chronic, progressive and fatal disease. This will require that individuals use these skills and take responsibility to manage their recovery. Groups are conducted 5 days per week with additional individual therapy sessions.

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a comprehensive treatment approach for women. This includes an initial evaluation, educational groups, group therapy as well as individual and family therapy sessions and 12-step support groups. Our goal is to help these women develop skills and tools that will lead them to recovery and overall wellness.

Medical Services – Ambulatory Detox

The Ambulatory Detox Program was created as a result of the overwhelming need for those suffering from opiate addiction and the limited availability of detox beds. Ambulatory Detox is an outpatient service that assists the client through a safe, medically monitored withdrawal process from opiates. It includes a complete medical evaluation, medications to ease the distress of physical withdrawal, and immediate placement in the appropriate level of rehabilitation.


The last phase of recovery is our AfterCare Program. This level of care helps women continue to develop relapse prevention skills and provides a strong support network which enables them to maintain long term recovery.

Transportation and childcare are available to women while they are in treatment.
