Lima UMADAOP provides programming with the belief that substance abuse is best prevented and treated when the cultural dynamics of a group are addressed and included in the process of prevention, treatment, recovery and education. Chemical dependency is viewed as an illness of the total person, which has physiological, psychological, social-cultural and spiritual components that require a holistic approach.
The primary purpose of the Lima UMADAOP is to provide culturally appropriate prevention services to African-American and Hispanic/Latino American communities in Ohio. All programming activities are structured to provide a foundation to build and rebuild positive, violence and substance free lifestyles, families and communities.
By improving the health and wellbeing of those most affected, we will save the lives of many that are suffering from chemical dependencies that are plaguing our urban communities.
