We are a newly established entity as of July 2019, bringing together the expertise, resources, and proud histories of the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board of Lorain County (ADAS) and the Lorain County Board of Mental Health (LCBMH).
The people who have been served by the mental health and substance use disorder systems have a common goal, and that is recovery. Consolidating the county’s addiction and mental health organizations will strengthen our ability to coordinate treatment and recovery services. This will improve our clients’ lives, and also improve the lives of their family members.
Joining forces will strengthen our ability to coordinate treatment and recovery services. The goal is that we will maximize delivery of behavioral health services. It means providing the right care, in the right setting, at the right time.

MENTAL HEALTH, ADDICTION & RECOVERY
When I becomes WE, illness become wellness.
I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.
When the world says “give up,” hope whispers, “try it one more time.”
Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you.
