CADAS, the Council for Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services, aims to provide the highest quality of treatment, prevention and educational services to the chemically dependent , their families, and the community at large regardless of their ability to pay. CADAS offers a variety of services to meet the diverse needs of those with substance use disorders.

  • CADAS offers inpatient, outpatient, and transitional living services.
  • CADAS accepts most forms of insurance, including TennCare and commercial insurance. Additionally, for the uninsured, we have access to state block grant funding for services.
  • Part of the treatment for substance use disorders includes peer-support groups. In each of our therapy models: inpatient, outpatient, and transitional living peer support is incorporated. CADAS also encourages community based attendance of twelve step meetings (AA, NA, Al-Anon, etc)
  • Counseling at CADAS is offered to participants in our treatment programs. Patients in treatment have access to a counselor and typically attend group therapy with individual sessions as needed. We currently refer to community partners for individual counseling when those enrolled in our programs would benefit from ongoing or focused individual counseling.
  • We do not currently utilize peer counseling in our treatment programs, however many of our staff have been through similar situations as our current program participants. We do offer a peer-to-peer transitional living program.
  • CADAS has several sober living options:
    • Oasis is a traditional halfway house for men and women. They receive case management from experienced counselors and are assisted in creating structure and consistency in their plans to become independent. Oasis residents typically stay for 3 to 6 months.
    • Family Way is a transitional living program for women with children who are recovering from substance use disorders. The Family Way program offers case management with our experienced counselors, housing assistance, group therapy and group education. The average length of stay for a Family Way participant is 12-18 months.
    • Samaritan House is a peer-to-peer based 12-step immersion program for men with substance use disorders. It is a long term program that aims to integrate the residents within the recovering community.
    • The CADAS Sober Living Apartments were opening in 2018 and are affordable housing for individuals in recovery from substance use disorders. They are single occupancy apartment units that are furnished and available to rent based on income guidelines.
