The Georgetown County Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission (GCADAC) is located in the historic city of Georgetown, South Carolina. GCADAC was originally established in 1973 through the South Carolina Act 301 of 1973. The GCADAC fashioned the not-for profit business component to deliver a variety of services to address the community concerns surrounding the problems associated with the misuse and abuse of alcohol and other drugs of abuse.
The vision of GCADAC is to be the leading provider of the substance abuse prevention, intervention, and treatment services in the community. We have taken on the challenge to provide a visionary approach to the national problem of substance abuse/ dependence.
The mission of the GCADAC is to reduce the negative health, social, and economic consequences resulting from the use of alcohol and other drugs. Through a variety of primary prevention, intervention and treatment strategies, the GADAC works with numerous other state and local agencies and organizations in attempt to reduce and control problems related to the use of these substances. The goal of the agency is to provide affordable and accessible quality services to the general public, as well as special high risk populations in an effort to create a safer and healthier environment for all citizens of Georgetown County.
