"To provide a variety of human services including, but not limited to, the coordination, prevention, and treatment of alcoholism and drug dependency to improve the safety, health and well-being of adults, children and youths."
DCCCA Inc. began as a small outpatient alcohol and drug treatment program in Lawrence, Kansas. Over the years, it has grown into a provider of quality education, prevention and treatment services for individuals and families across the State of Kansas.
For over thirty years, DCCCA has provided a variety of human services and played an active role in helping clients improve their quality of life.
What does DCCCA stand for?
DCCCA began operations in Lawrence, Kansas in the summer of 1974 as the Douglas County Citizens Committee on Alcoholism. Over the years, we became known locally as DCCCA. In 1989, our legal name was changed to DCCCA by our Board of Directors. This change was prompted by our program delivery outside of Douglas County and our program growth to include services for problems other than alcoholism.
