Day Treatment

The goal of The LCADA Way Day Treatment Program is to help our customers 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 family and individual therapy sessions. The Day treatment level of care provides additional support and treatment services for customers with more complex issues.

Day Treatment with Supportive Housing – Men’s / Women’s Services
In partnership with community resources, The LCADA Way provides sober housing combined with treatment services, for those who require a safe and drug free environment. Those admitted will participate in day treatment services for the first phase of the program. They will be able to stay in the Recovery Home following the completion of treatment while they continue to adjust to life without substances. During the second phase they will be assisted in gaining employment/job skills and continue to receive ongoing recovery support.

The Key Women’s Center Residential Housing – Women’s Services
The KEY is our residential facility for Women which provides a supportive and caring environment for women and their children (ages 0-4. The KEY is a 24 hour a day. 7 day per week facility that provides therapeutic structure and support for women who are suffering from substance abuse issues. Additional supports include trauma-based care, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), and mental health services. The Key also provides specialized services for pregnant and post-partum women and their children. Research-based models of care and a 12-Step approach are utilized in an effort for our customers to develop the tools and skills to maintain long term recovery.

Intensive Outpatient Program

The goal of our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is to help individuals develop the skills and tools so they can recover and remain abstinent. This means that the individual must assume responsibility for his illness and then use the skills and tools that he has developed to manage his/her recovery. Groups are conducted 3 times per week.

Low Intensity Treatment Services

Our Low Intensity Treatment program is a co-ed group for customers in need of education related to substance abuse and to evaluate the need for a possible higher level of care. The treatment programming includes participation in education groups for 6 to 12 sessions. Individualized Counseling and Family Education is also available.

Medical Services – Ambulatory Detox

The Ambulatory Detox Program was created because 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 individual through a safe, medically monitored withdrawal 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.

Medication Assisted Treatment

The LCADA Way provides medication assisted treatment to adults struggling to recover from opiate addiction. Services are provided through The LCADA Way’s Physician who is licensed in Addiction Medicine. Medication assistance may include Suboxone, Vivitrol, or Naltrexone. Customers must meet eligibility criteria and must be participating in primary treatment.

Trauma Informed Care

The LCADA Way offers a complete range of alcohol, drug, and behavioral health programs. A variety of assessment options and screening services are designed to fit your needs and availability.

The LCADA Way utilizes a trauma informed care approach. All clinical staff have been trained in understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of trauma and how this is a contributing factor to ongoing substance abuse. The agency utilizes evidenced based curriculum, specific to males and females.

Adolescent Treatment Services

Adolescent Treatment Services

Alcohol/drug abuse and addiction are prevalent in all age groups, but adolescents are especially vulnerable to these diseases. That is why we offer treatment programs specially designed for the specific challenges and needs of adolescents and their families. We recognize that the success of an adolescent’s treatment depends on understanding the emotional, behavioral, environmental, and family aspects of the adolescent’s life.

This program is for those 13-18 years old. We evaluate individuals 18 years of age to determine whether they are more suited for adolescent or adult programming.

Trauma Informed Care

The LCADA Way utilizes a trauma informed care approach. All clinical staff have been trained in understanding, recognizing, and responding to the effects of trauma and how this is a contributing factor to ongoing substance abuse. The agency utilizes evidenced based curriculum, specific to males and females.


Because adolescent brains are not fully developed, they are at greater risk of developing a substance problem and at an accelerated pace than an adult who tries a substance for the first time. They also have more peer influences and/or the perceived need to be accepted by a particular group which often leads, not only to initial substance use, but experimenting with more dangerous substances.


Often, the adolescent customer has someone living in the home who is in active addiction, and there is not an option (as with the adult customer) of just moving out and into sober housing.

Another challenge is that adolescents often do not have the same serious consequences of their substance use as compared to adults, so most do not see a need to stop their destructive patterns of using.

The biggest challenge today is the legalization of medical and recreational use of marijuana. This leads customers (both adolescent and adults) to believe that marijuana use is not harmful.

Mental Health Services

Mental Health Services

The LCADA Way is here to assist with not only addiction concerns but also mental health concerns. Whatever the cause, we know it is difficult to obtain and maintain sobriety without addressing your mental health.

We evaluate all contributing factors and identify the best treatment plan possible. Addiction teams and Medical teams work together to treat substance abuse and mental health simultaneously. The LCADA Way works with many different disorders including but not limited to anxiety, depression, personality, and trauma.

If for any reason we do not feel The LCADA Way is the most appropriate place for your treatment, we will assist in referring you to another agency. Our goal is to find you the best treatment options.

Individual & Adolescent Counseling

Our Problem Gambling Services take into consideration age, biological, behavioral, economic and cultural issues influencing gambling and health. We combine prevention, harm reduction and multiple levels of treatment, focusing on quality-of-life issues for gamblers and their loved ones. Our strategies minimize gambling’s negative impacts while recognizing the reality of gambling’s availability, cultural acceptance and economic appeal.

Family Support & Information

Experts at The LCADA Way know problem gambling doesn’t just affect the gambler. It can have serious consequences for the people around them too. Families suffer from debt and property loss caused by gambling. Loved ones are manipulated and lied to, children are neglected, and verbal and physical abuse is common. The good news is that you are not powerless. In fact, friends and family of problem gamblers are often the driving force behind getting the gambler to admit a problem and get help. We are here to provide tips for friends and family of problem gamblers.

Residential & Day Treatment Programs

Our programs provide structured, scheduled treatment and/or rehabilitation activities while the individual resides at home or in one of our recovery facilities. Individuals develop and practice the skills to manage gambling and related problems, with 24 hr. access to a supportive environment. Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach, we help individuals gain insight in destructive behavior patterns and replace them with healthy coping skills. Treatment is supplemented with individualized continuing care programs.

Low Intensity Treatment

Our low intensity treatment is designed for those experiencing early-stage gambling problems. The treatment includes participation in education groups of 6-12 sessions to assist individuals and loved ones in determining the most appropriate next steps for recovery. Individualized Counseling and Family Education is also available.
