Established in 1898, Illinois Church Action on Alcohol and Addiction Problems (ILCAAAP) has been active in prevention of alcohol problems for over 100 years.
ILCAAAP is a statewide, non-profit organization dedicated to prevent problems caused by alcohol, other drugs, and gambling.
The Mission of ILCAAAP is to open doors to freedom from addictive behavior for individuals and families in Illinois through public information, education and legislation.
Prevention is the only way to halt the increase or effect a decrease. All segments of society – church, school, parent, and community – must be involved. Problems such as though associated with the abuse of alcohol, other drugs and gambling are never alleviated or solved by simply treating the victims.
Illinois Churches in Action, a 501 (c) (3) affiliate, provides educational outreach to youth, churches, schools, and community groups. The Alcohol Education Program provides prevention training for youth in grades 4-12 and for their parents.
Affiliation with the American Council on Alcohol Problems and the National Coalition Against Gambling Expansion, enables ILCAAAP to provide resources and information on both a state and national level.
