Mission Statement

To provide compassionate, professional services combating the effects of substance use and misuse utilizing prevention, intervention, counseling and recovery support.
Program Philosophy and Goal

The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council of Deep East Texas believes that chemical dependency is a progressive, incurable, chronic and fatal disease that can be managed with long term treatment. It is essential that treatment include family and/or significant other involvement and 12 step or other support groups available in the local area. The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council of Deep East Texas' goal is to provide a quality outpatient treatment program that focuses on the recovery and maintenance from abuse/addiction of mind altering chemicals. The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council subscribes to the belief that abstinence from consumption of all mind-changing chemicals (including alcohol) is the only current practice that can lead to a successful treatment outcome.
