At age 59 I knew I was running out of last chances. Going to CADAS helped save my life. I was very blessed to have as my small group counselor. She was wonderful. We connected pretty quickly. I listened when I needed to listen, and spoke when I needed to speak. She is so funny, with her broken english. She directly saved my life. It took me about a week to get my head out of my ass and realized there were people there who really wanted to help me, and give me the tools I needed once I got out. Which leads me to this part. On the plus side....the help I desperately needed was there. The treatment program is pretty good. Everyone there wanted to help me. So, they get a 4.5 for that part. On the negative side....i had a nurse accuse me of abusing my anti- depressant meds.....come to find out..she couldn't add.. I think the techs let some issues within the unit get way out of control before attempting to intervene. Lots and lots of drama within the unit that was allowed to fester and continue. The food was at best slop. The rooms were pretty bad also. We had bedbugs that the staff refused to take care of for way to long. It was January when I was there and the heat was on in the rooms, and it would get so hot during the night that I couldn't hardly breath. They said they couldn't do anything about it...the beds were at best, terrible. CADAS is supposed to be a co-occurring treatment facility. I never once got to talk to any doctor or psychologist about my depression issues. That brings the score down to 1.7 on the negative side. That being said, I worked the program hard, took in everything they were willing to offer me, and left there with a lot of tools to use in my recovery. As of yesterday, I have 10 months clean. It works if you work it........

The staff is extremely rude and short. Rebecca has zero professionalism and has no business talking to anyone needing help. While I was talking she was screaming as loud as she could to someone. I would not recommend this place!

He really shouldn't have been there. He didn't need to be there. A new doctor wasted our time and the rehab's.

It is a strong twelve step facility. After 13 facilities, I finally was able to maintain 7years clean after CADAS. I learned to live sober. Its no ClubMed. This facility is caring and genuine but no nonsense. They exist solely to empower people to be able to get and stay sober.

They are very strong 12 step oriented with one on one counselling as well as group setting. Community there is strong. The facility is very clinical and hospital like. They helped me to uncover what was needed in order for men to have continued sobriety. They strongly reinforced a good program in me. I am 7 years sober today and living a good wholesome life, one day at a time.

They are very strong in 12 step recovery and counselling with individual and group sessions. Very effective. It is very clinical. I had been to treatment 14 times prior. This was my final facility. I just celebrated 7 years. This facility is no nonsense recovery! It is no fluff and strong program. If a person doesn't want to learn to live sober, they need to go elsewhere. This place is all about changing lives!

They are quick to accept someone and will get them in quick. The staff is friendly and really try to help. However, they perform drug screens too quickly during the program and are quick to make false accusations (the doctor on staff). Cadas really helped my friend. It was a struggle for her- she went to get off her prescribed pain management medications. The staff- nurses and techs were always kind and helpful, however the attending physician was quite rude and snippy. Overall it was a good experience for her.

Well let's see. No one helped me with a program to follow for 2 days till I asked. They had no regard for people's feelings. They were not at all professional. For one this was my 4th rehab experience in 15 years. Some I had attended were great. This one I believe was a place where people went who had the choice of jail or rehab. They were use to dealing with people of that nature. I was not there for that reason. I went because I needed helP. I ended up checking my self out after 4 days.

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.
