Providing education to prevent and resources to achieve recovery!
The Littleton Coalition Against Addiction (LCAA) was created to raise awareness and provide resources and support for anyone struggling with drug dependency and addiction to opioids. We also offer support and resources to friends and family members of anyone suffering from the disease of addiction.
We acknowledge that addiction is an illness and not a choice. We embrace anyone in need of help with compassion and an open mind. Our mission is to empower people to seek treatment and provide them with the tools to achieve a successful recovery.

What We Know…
Addiction does not discriminate
It does not matter who you are…your age, race, level of education, financial situation, if you are homeless or have a loving family. Drug addiction does not only destroy the person who is using, it destroys the family both emotionally and financially. Addiction is a disease. Not a choice.
What We Can Do…
As a community we can approach this matter with empathy and help diminish the stigma associated with drug addiction. We can educate ourselves and our children about the dangers of prescription drugs by sharing resources and having an open dialogue about this issue. We can talk with our health care providers to learn more about ways to avoid addiction if prescription pain medication is necessary.
