Prevention & Education Services for Families

At The LCADA Way, we are committed to the prevention of alcohol, tobacco, and drug abuse among individuals, families and communities. We provide a variety of prevention services that are available to families, schools, business and communities.

Care-vention Family Intervention

Care-vention services assist families with concerns about a loved one’s alcohol or drug abuse. We provide education regarding the intervention process, assist families to determine their best course of action, and equip families to address their loved one’s use in a caring yet impactful way.


Eduvention provides Education and Intervention services to families concerned about their teen’s substance use. The youth must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. This program is also open to parents who simply want to learn more about issues related to teen substance use. The program is conducted one evening per week over a period of four weeks. This program does NOT take the place of an assessment or treatment services.

School-Based Services

Parents & Youths:

  • Concerned about your alcohol or drug use or the use of someone you care about?
  • Questions about teen alcohol/drug use?
  • Need help identifying available resources to address alcohol, tobacco or drug related issues?

In collaboration with schools, The LCADA Way offers problem identification, education, support, and referral services to parents and youths within many Lorain County school districts. These are prevention and support services. They are not treatment or assessment services. To inquire regarding service availability within your district, please call (440) 989-4934.
