The Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Programs (UMADAOP) of Ohio were established in 1980. A network was developed to adequately address the prevention of alcohol abuse among African and Hispanic Americans throughout Ohio. The original eight programs were called Urban Minority Alcoholism Outreach Programs (UMAOP) and operated under the guidance of implementing agencies. They were located in Akron, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Cleveland Hispanic, Columbus, Dayton, Toledo and Youngstown. Through the years, other programs were added, and although UMAOP had always addressed drugs other than alcohol, in 1987, the 117th Ohio General Assembly passed into law the name change to The Urban Minority Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Outreach Programs of Ohio.
The Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services currently funds 12 UMADAOPs and one specialized program component in northwest Ohio to provide additional services to Hispanic citizens.They are a vital force in meeting the substance abuse education, prevention and treatment needs of African and Hispanic/Latino Americans throughout the state of Ohio.
