TREATMENT PROGRAM SERVICES*
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), addiction is defined as a chronic, relapsing brain disease that is characterized by compulsive drug seeking and use, despite harmful consequences. It is considered a brain disease because drugs change the brain; they change its structure and how it works. These brain changes can be long lasting and can lead to many harmful, often self-destructive, behaviors. Like other diseases, addiction can be treated.
The Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley is San Angelo's only long-term, non-criminal justice treatment facility.

Youth Prevention And Intervention
ADACCV utilizes key prevention curriculums to teach youth ages 4 to 18 effective resistance and avoidance skills.

These dynamic curriculums are designed to assist youth to gain the necessary life and social skills and tools to avoid tobacco, drug and alcohol use.
ADACCV's intervention curriculums reach youth who are determined to be "at risk" and "high risk" for tobacco, drug and alcohol use and abuse. ADACCV collaborates with schools, social service providers, health organizations, churches and various community organizations to maximize the prevention program's effectiveness.
