Alcoholism and Drug Addiction (CADAS)

The Center for Alcoholism and Drug Addiction Services (CADAS) provides treatment, prevention, and intervention services to help individuals and families respond to the devastation of alcohol and chemical dependency.

Whatever the level of care, clients participate in individual and group counseling, lecture and discussion groups, family counseling, and other services. All Montgomery County residents are eligible for services. Fees are adjusted based upon their ability to pay. People who do not live in Montgomery County can also seek treatment, but must pay for services.

Partnerships / Collaboration / Community Involvement

To support students desiring to work in the field of addictions, CADAS is the practicum site for Sinclair, Wright State and U.D. students.  Staff served on a number of committees including Prostitution Intervention Collaborative, Opening Doors for the Homeless Advisory Committee, Montgomery County’s Suicide Prevention Coalition, Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas Drug Court, Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Task Force, Montgomery County Drug Poisoning Coalition, Sinclair Community College’s Mental Health Technology Advisory Committee, and the OSAM Focus Group. 

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.


Common Questions

What do I need to do to receive CADAS services?
Call CrisisCare at 224-4646 and ask to be scheduled for an assessment of your alcohol and/or drug use. The assessment will be completed by a person licensed to diagnose substance use problems. That person will discuss with you a treatment recommendation if one is needed and offer a treatment program. If you are a resident of Montgomery County, treatment will be adjusted based on the ability to pay. Treatment is also available to those living outside Montgomery County, but they must pay for services received.
Diagnosis... What does that mean?
Depending upon the number and kinds of problems a person is experiencing as a result of the alcohol and/or other drug use, a diagnosis of either “abuse” or “dependence” is made by a chemical dependency professional.
How long are the various treatment programs?
That is a good question and one that is not answered easily. Generally, the Adult Outpatient Program lasts approximately sixteen (16) weeks. However, this varies by the individual’s commitment to change, progress in treatment and the severity of the problems experienced when using. Some individuals with an “abuse” diagnosis may have a shorter outpatient involvement.
