Loretta Bach, LADC
Loretta Bach graduated from Minnesota State University-Mankato with certification in chemical dependency counseling in 1986. She went on to work towards certification as a CCDCR and was ultimately licensed by the State of Minnesota as a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC). Loretta has worked continuously since her certification and licensure at all levels of Substance Use Disorder treatment. She has worked with both adolescents and adults. Loretta was the Program Director of an adolescent residential treatment program in Winnebago, Minnesota. She also has worked in delivering outpatient services in the roles of primary counselor and outpatient coordinator. She helped Mayo Health Systems develop an extended care/board and lodge program as well as helping with staff development.
Loretta moved to Park Rapids in 2009. She has worked most of her time at Upper Mississippi Mental Health Center and Northern Pines Mental Health since her move “Up North”.
Loretta says she has been fortunate to work with many compassionate and forward-thinking staff and supervisors over her years of practice. She has witnessed staggering changes in health care and has worked with the people that have drawn up policy and still have found ways to provide “person centered” care while working with these changes. She is excited to continue that journey with her coworkers at Lake County Associates.
Loretta Bach, LADC is currently scheduling adult or adolescent Chemical Use Assessments (CUA or “Rule 25 Assessments”) in our Park Rapids office.
