Meskwaki Alcohol and Drug Abuse Center

MADAC’s mission is to provide alcohol and drug treatment, and prevention services to the Meskwaki Nation in order to promote the health and well-being of individuals, families, and community members.


The Meskwaki settlement’s adults, adolescents, children and families will have optimal physical and behavioral health; where behavioral health, substance abuse, dependency and addiction are recognized as health issues; and where stigma and other barriers to recovery are eliminated. We serve clients within the Meskwaki Contract Health Services delivery area.
