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.
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.
