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-
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.
Our mission is to provide comprehensive substance abuse recovery and behavioral health services to help individuals and families achieve and maintain a healthy and productive lifestyle. This is accomplished through comprehensive treatment and prevention methods guided by a philosophy of mutual concern and responsibility.
