CDAP > The Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs Treatment Philosophy
The Center for Drug and Alcohol Programs Treatment Philosophy

The Center for Drug and Alcohol Program’s treatment philosophy encompasses a variety of biological, psychological and social interventions that have been shown to be effective when treating alcoholism or substance abuse. No single approach characterizes the CDAP program, since we know from experience that not everyone responds to the same alcohol and drug abuse therapies in the same way.

What is unique about CDAP is that we use alcohol and drug abuse therapies that have been shown, in research studies, to be effective in reducing risk of relapse. In addition, our therapists have received specialized training in using these therapies with drug and or alcohol addicted individuals. Patients are provided with several different substance abuse treatments, thereby maximizing the chances that they will benefit from the drug or alcohol treatment experience.
