Overcoming Substance Use Disorders: Empowering Lives through LRADAC’s Dedicated Services

August 8, 2023

Substance use disorders involve the recurrent use of drugs or alcohol, leading to significant impairment and distress. Addiction can take various forms, from alcohol and marijuana to illicit drugs like opioids, cocaine, and methamphetamine. The impact of these disorders goes beyond physical health; they can severely affect mental well-being, relationships, and overall quality of life.

Substance use disorders can be a difficult and traumatic experience, not just for the individual struggling with addiction but for their loved ones as well. Fortunately, organizations like LRADAC offer various services to support individuals in their journey toward recovery.

At LRADAC, patients have access to a variety of evidence-based treatment options, including individual counseling, group therapy, and medication-assisted treatment. We also offer specialized services for women, adolescents, and individuals with co-occurring mental health conditions.
