Strengths: One on one counseling and group therapy and classes Weaknesses: Spirituality and holistic approaches. It offers state grants if uninsured.


Caring compassionate staff, but a lack of staff. I would definitely suggest or reccomend cadas to friends and family...they saved my life.


It was okay. They need improved family participation and cleanliness.

First of all, this addiction is mind over matter. You have to want to quit. I wanted to and the facility gave me the tools and support I needed to quit and take care of my mental disabilities.


Excellent. As comfortable as could be expected

Areas of Focus
Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

Patients who undergo intensive outpatient treatment continue to live at home and sometimes go to school or work while participating in a highly structured treatment protocol that is focused on ending substance abuse. Programs vary in terms of how much treatment patients receive, how often and for how long. Some facilities design individualized intensive outpatient treatment programs.
