The Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment (CADT) is a network of several facilities in Duluth, Minnesota. It has been serving the community since 1961 when a group of concerned citizens came together to form the Center on Problem Drinking. Today, the organization has a new name and offers a full continuum of treatment for adults dealing with chemical dependency and co-occurring disorders. Options include detox, inpatient and outpatient programs, with gender-specific sober living homes available as well. Outpatient care is offered at a location separate from the primary care facility. There is also a specialized program for outpatient adolescent treatment.
Treatment and Staff
All programs begin with an assessment so the duration and frequency of treatment can be determined. The minimum length of care is 30 days but clients can attend longer if needed. The individualized treatment plans at CADT consist of group and individual therapy with an optional family component.
The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) consists of at least 12 hours of treatment a week, with day and evening hours available. Upon completion, clients can step down to a standard outpatient level of care, where treatment hours are dependent on the individual plan but typically consist of two to three hours a week. Both levels require weekly 12-step meeting involvement off-site. Gender-specific and specialized groups are available for trauma, chronic relapse and mood disorders. A Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) track is offered for clients recovering from opiate addiction. This includes medication management and mandatory IOP.
The CADT adolescent outpatient program is available at Woodland Hills Treatment Center, which specializes in mental health and juvenile justice services for young people in Duluth. The substance abuse program was established in 2002, for clients aged 13 to 18, and provides substance abuse education classes, Rule 25 chemical dependency assessments and individualized outpatient care.
The CADT approach to recovery is based on evidence-based practices and incorporates modalities like DBT, CBT and Motivational Interviewing (MI). For clients with a dual diagnosis, psychiatric medication management is available.
CADT offers three sober living homes for adults in the area. The organization also provides treatment for gambling addiction, as well as help with health insurance enrollment and low cost housing. Drug and alcohol assessments for court purposes are available on a walk-in basis at the main facility.
Center for Alcohol and Drug Treatment offers a continuum of care for addiction recovery that combines evidence-based therapy and other options, including MAT for those struggling with opiate withdrawal. These are good options as a step down from inpatient treatment or on their own. This is a great outpatient choice for adolescents and those looking for help with co-occurring disorders.
