Family Way

CADAS recognizes the special needs of women with small children. Trying to gain a foothold in recovery while parenting small children can seem impossible. The Family Way program at CADAS makes this seemingly unreachable goal possible.

Twelve duplexes are furnished and ready to support mothers with their children (up to age 11) and pregnant women who are ready to begin a program of recovery.


Family Way has several closely monitored program requirements all geared toward helping the residents become better parents and productive members of society. Life skills training, as well as individual and group counseling, are provided to aid with family reunification and with relationship problems within the family. In an extra effort to provide day care and educational resources, CADAS also works with other community agencies to help insure every available community asset is utilized.

Case Managers are on site to focus on the resident’s individualized progress and goals. Site supervision is maintained 24 hours a day. The typical stay at Family Way is two years.

A family coordinator is available to assist the children with their development. Referrals to Early Childhood Intervention, the Head Start Program and other community resources are made to detect developmental delays, speech and hearing impairments.

Family Way is a solid family-based program that offers success to women wishing to gain a substance-free way of life for themselves and their children.
