For 47 years the California Hispanic Commission Alcohol and Drug Abuse (CHCADA) has led the way to  reduce substance use dependency amongst the Latino population throughout California,  providing a broad range of services that transcend racial/ethnic and gender lines. Uniquely cognizant of the fact that the genesis of substance abuse disorders is often located within biochemical and genetic factors; familial circumstances; psychological dynamics, and within the realm of the environmental and the sociocultural, CHCADA is a private, nonprofit community-based organization that has always sought to address both the antecedents and the secondary effects of substance abuse and dependency through the use of comprehensive interdisciplinary services.

CHCADA provides bilingual services for both intensive outpatient (IOP) and outpatient (OP) treatment services for adults and adolescents with substance use or co-occurring disorders, ages 18 and over, in English and in Spanish, from two locations:  Montebello and El Monte.  Our unique treatment program is individualized according to each person’s needs and preferences toward successful long-term recovery. Services are available to youth and adults ages 12 and up, men and women.
