The Hill Country Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (HCCADA’s) program of substance abuse services is based on medical research that alcoholism and addiction to other drugs is a progressive disease. Research and evaluation studies indicate that long periods of sobriety, abstinence, and/or reduced drug use result from effective intervention and treatment. Research also demonstrates that treatment results in a marked reduction in negative consequences for patients, their families, friends, and society at large. This is measured by domestic violence, disrupted families, employment histories, and public costs for law enforcement, welfare dependence, medical costs, and admissions to psychiatric hospitals. As alcoholism and drug addiction are chronic, relapsing disorders, continued treatment and support services will be required after any initial course of treatment.

 Alcohol, tobacco, or other drug addiction is an individual, family, worksite, and community affliction. They negatively impact all sectors of society regardless of age, education, race/ethnicity, gender, occupation, or socio-economic status. Therefore, it is critical that all citizens, especially teachers, employers, parents, and youth, understand the ability to treat the illness and the channels for getting a person into private or public treatment facilities. HCCADA realizes the importance of ensuring its treatment program meet established standards for providing services. Treatment must be tailored to the specific needs of each individual, and a continuum of treatment services is essential for matching patients with the optimal types and sequences of treatments. It is also important that specialized treatment services be available for populations with special needs and circumstances, such as adolescents, and pregnant women, members of minority populations, and those with disabilities.

 HCCADA recognizes that substance abuse treatment cannot occur in isolation from law enforcement and public safety, educational institutions, and social, health, and economic services. It is essential that substance abuse treatment have linkages with all segments of society that are important to the recovery and rehabilitation of the alcoholic and addict.

 A key viewpoint of HCCADA’s philosophy is recognizing the importance of breaking the generational cycle of addiction by providing intervention services as early as possible.
