Since its establishment in 1980 as one of the first statewide substance abuse prevention and treatment programs, Ohio’s UMADAOP (Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Programs) Federation has grown to become a vital force in meeting the substance abuse education, prevention and treatment needs of African Americans and Hispanic Americans throughout the state of Ohio.
The UMADAOP Federation’s mission is to lead the nation in providing comprehensive, culturally appropriate, evidence-based prevention, treatment, recovery, re-entry and educational services for Ohio’s African and Hispanic American communities by assisting youth, families and communities in developing healthy lifestyle choices.
The 12 UMADAOPs which comprise the network provide community-based treatment and recovery services in the cities of Akron, Cincinnati, Cleveland (and Cleveland Hispanic UMADAOP), Columbus, Dayton, Lima, Lorain, Mansfield, Toledo (Lucas County), Warren and Youngstown. UMADAOP believes that substance abuse-related problems are best treated and prevented when the cultural dynamics of service recipients are addressed in the process of delivering prevention, treatment, recovery and educational services. UMADAOP is also guided by the belief that substance abuse-related problems affect the total person and present physiological, psychological, social-cultural and spiritual dynamics which require a holistic approach.
UMADAOP’s vision is to strengthen collaborative efforts with other agencies, educational institutions, faith-based organizations, corporations, criminal justice systems and the public health sector to improve the overall quality of life for African Americans and Hispanic Americans.
As part of its mission to serve, the Ohio UMADAOP organizations have developed a collaborative effort designed to reduce the recidivism rates of African-American males returning to their communities after being imprisoned due to an alcohol or drug related offense. The Circle for Recovery project helps enable relapse prevention, with a major emphasis on creating safe and healthy communities for families and citizens.
