COLUMBIA, S.C. — For over 42 years, LRADAC formerly known as The Lexington/Richland Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council, has offered a wide array of substance misuse prevention, intervention, and treatment programs to the citizens of Lexington and Richland counties.
Robbie Robertson talks about LRADAC’s important role in the Midlands, reminding everyone that substance misuse and addiction are preventable and treatable.
With a dedicated staff and innovative programs and services, LRADAC takes a proactive approach to fighting addiction and drug misuse in our schools, businesses and neighborhoods. We tailor our programs to meet the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve. Our prevention, intervention and treatment programs spread the message that there is hope and that substance misuse and addiction are preventable and treatable.
LRADAC is a non-profit agency. We are also one of 33 county alcohol and drug abuse authorities recognized by the state of South Carolina. This network of direct service agencies provides prevention, intervention and treatment programs to citizens in all 46 counties of the state. Each year, more than 50,000 South Carolinians receive direct intervention and/or treatment services through the county authorities. Last year, LRADAC alone served more than 5,000 patients.
