LRADAC Launches New Website Highlighting Services, Foundation, and Pathways to Recovery

July 18, 2016

Columbia, SC – LRADAC launched a new website which highlights the organization’s mission to create and support pathways to prevention and recovery from substance misuse for individuals, families, and communities.  Gayle Aycock, President and CEO, said, “At LRADAC, we recognize that every person, family, and local community is unique and for that reason we tailor individualized plans of care to help everyone find their own path to recovery.”

For referring doctors’ offices and human service organizations who wish to refer an individual for an alcohol or drug problem, a clear and simple referral process and form is presented.  LRADAC accepts clients from both referral sources as well as self-referrals.

The news section features latest news and editorial content from expert staff in the areas of substance use trends, program spotlights, and other timely stories.

The LRADAC Foundation, also highlighted on the site, gives supporters the opportunity to donate to help enhance LRADAC’s impact on families.  Allison Atkins, director of the foundation, stated, “Substance misuse does not impact just one person at a time because the entire family is impacted by this disease.  In so many cases of family collapse and harm to children, substance misuse is the primary problem in the home.  By supporting recovery, we are helping individuals overcome their battle with alcohol and drugs as well as healing the family.”

The newly designed site also features a section in Spanish for the community’s Spanish-speaking populations.  Bilingual staff are available to assist with intake and services.
