The Center for Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Services (CADAS) provides substance abuse treatment, problem gambling treatment, prevention, and intervention services to help individuals and families respond to the devastation of alcohol, gambling and chemical dependency.
Whatever the level of care, clients participate in individual and group counseling, lecture and discussion groups, family counseling, and other services. Most Montgomery County residents are eligible for services. Fees are adjusted based upon their ability to pay. Individuals living outside Montgomery County can also receive treatment, but must pay for services either through Medicaid that includes substance abuse treatment or some other payment form. (CADAS does not accept private insurance.)
To support students desiring to work in the field of addictions, CADAS is the practicum site for Sinclair, Wright State and University of Dayton students. Staff served on a number of committees including:
CADAS works closely with all Montgomery County Municipal and Common Pleas Probation Departments, Children’s Services Board, DODA, Mount Olive, Homefull, Places, the Job Center, OASIS House, and many others to help meet our clients’ needs. CADAS has a close relationship with a variety of abstinence-based support systems, including AA, NA, and Al-Anon.
