Hannibal Council on Alcohol & Drug Abuse

HCADA offers a variety of services to meet the treatment needs of the communities we serve. If you have questions about which service you need or want to ask questions about the program we invite you to call our intake coordinator at (573) 248-1196 or (800) 498-5396.


Detoxification or “Detox” is designed to assist the client with managing the initial symptoms of intoxication and withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs. Clients may admit themselves for detox voluntarily, however we also accept court-ordered 96-hour holds. The Hannibal Detox accepts both men and women. The Mexico facility only accepts men for detox.

Clients are closely monitored by detox staff and the client’s vital signs are taken at regular intervals.

Activities for the client in detox include:

  • Rest
  • Educational Videos
  • Educational Groups (as client’s condition permits)

During this phase of treatment detox clients may not use the phone or have visitors as this may interfere with the treatment process.

Family members or significant others who wish to speak to staff to check on the status of the client may do so as long as the client has signed a release naming the person who wishes to call.

Detox is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Clients may come for treatment at any time. Clients are encouraged to bring personal items with them when they arrive as well as any medications in their original prescription containers.


Outpatient services are available at all HCADA locations. Both group and Individual counseling is available on an outpatient basis. Additionally, educational groups and relapse prevention are available through Outpatient services.

All services at HCADA are driven by an individual treatment plan, which guides the frequency and duration of services.

Codependency counseling is offered to significant others, wives, family of consumers.

Anger management classes are offered at each location when there are enough consumer requests to warrant developing a group.


Men’s Residential – Our men’s residential program is a variable length program based on consumer needs, however court-ordered 30 day holds are accepted. Relapse prevention or intervention may require a shorter length of stay.

Consumers are in a highly structured setting. A typical day may include attending groups, individual counseling, group education, group counseling and structured activities. Consumers in residential treatment also have access to 12-Step support meetings.

Family members are encouraged to participate in the consumer’s treatment through attending Family Groups on Sundays and family conferences with a counselor while the consumer is in treatment. Family members are also encouraged to participate in local Al-Anon groups for support.

Women’s Residential – Our women’s residential program is a variable length program based on consumer needs, consumers are in a highly structured environment from 8:00am to 8:00pm seven days a week. The Program includes group counseling, group education, individual counseling, structured activities, and case management. Consumers also have access to 12-step meetings.

Family therapy is offered to consumers as a way to educate family members on their loved one’s addiction so they can be supportive in their recovery.

Transitional housing is available to consumers who meet the criteria based on individual needs. Consumers must complete their residential treatment prior to transitional housing placement.
