The mission of the Hancock County Addiction Coalition (HCAC) is to Support, Treat, Educate and Prevent (S.T.E.P.) in our communities.


Since 1993


Founded in 2016 under the leadership of Ada Bair of Memorial Hospital, the Hancock County Addiction Coalition started out as the Hancock County Opioid Task Force.  It was a group of concerned individuals from across Hancock County that wanted to do something about opioid addiction in our local community.  As the group progressed, they realized that they should be focused not only on Opioids, but all substance abuse and addictions. On March 20, 2019, the group officially announced it would be changing its name to the Hancock County Addiction Coalition.  Along with the name change, the coalition revised and adopted a new mission statement that aligns with new name.
