Hays-Caldwell Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, a private non-profit corporation, was formed in 1984 by a grass roots coalition of community and substance abuse professionals concerned about substance abuse and related problems. Originally established to provide prevention and education services, the agency has broadened its focus to include outpatient treatment, counseling, intervention, and treatment referrals.
As a non-profit, 501(c)3 community health organization, HCCADA’s mission is to promote community and family enrichment through substance abuse education, prevention, and treatment. The Council provides a comprehensive coordinated system of programs that provide information, education, prevention, assessment, referral, and advocacy for the community. In Hays and Caldwell counties, the Council is recognized as a major provider of prevention and treatment services. The Council is staffed by a multidimensional team of professionals, including chemical dependency counselors, educators, social workers and therapists.
