The Center for Chemical Addictions Treatment has provided services to chemically dependant adults since its incorporation in June 1970. At that time, the agency was known as the Center for Comprehensive Alcoholism Treatment.
- 1975 - CCAT's detox center received accreditation by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals (later JCAHO).
- 1981 - CCAT merged with the Cincinnati Alcoholism Rehabilitation Enterprises (CARE, Inc.) and moved into the former nunnery (on Ezzard Charles Drive) of the since-demolished St. Mary's Hospital, which allowed the agency to provide a continuum of services in one location.
- 1988 - CCAT was accepted as a United Way agency.
- 1994 - The agency changed its name to the Center for Chemical Addictions Treatment to reflect the change in the types of services provided. Additionally, the agency began a plan to purchase, renovate and expand its current location.
- 1998 - A successful Capital Campaign allowed CCAT to purchase the building on Ezzard Charles.
- 2000 - Major renovations were completed and the new space was occupied.
For 41 years, thousands of people have walked through CCAT's doors looking for a better life through sobriety. At CCAT, recovery is within reach.
