Addictive Disease Support Services

Addictive Disease Support Services (ADSS) are medium-intensity community-based services that promote substance use recovery for people with addictive disease and other substance use disorders. Services are customized to the needs and preferences of each individual. ADSS helps restore individuals to their best possible level of functioning, while building the independence, resiliency and coping skills needed to live in their communities. Family members and significant others can be included upon request.

ADSS staff helps each person develop an individual recovery plan (IRP) based on his or her strengths, preferences and goals. In order to meet the needs of individuals most effectively, ADSS staff can meet with an individual in his or her home, or locations in the community such as shelters, street environments or other locations that provide adequate privacy and safety. ADSS staff have flexible hours in order to be available to individuals who might need help outside normal hours of operation and are available to respond rapidly to early signs of relapse or crisis.
