Los Angeles Centers for Alcohol and Drug Abuse (LA CADA)

County: Los Angeles

Project Year: YOR I Project (2018-2020)

Project Name: YOR LA CADA

Project Description: The YOR LA CADA project provided services to youth ages 12-24 who are at risk of developing an OUD, have an OUD, or are at risk of an opioid overdose.  YOR LA CADA worked primarily with the middle and high schools and the colleges in and around the Santa Fe Springs area to provide education and medications for addiction treatment (MAT) of OUDs to parents, teachers, students, and administrators. Information delivered focused on the dangers of opioid use, the options available for treatment, and the information necessary for individuals looking for help. In addition, we will outreach to our community partners in the effort to leverage existing professional relationships and community contacts. To ensure that a substantial swath of the populations served by LA CADA are informed of the availability of medications to treat OUDs.  Our goal is to be the first resource individuals in Service Planning Area (SPA) 7 think of and seek out when they need MAT services.
