CADAS seriously suffers from Dayton budget cuts
Intern (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHDecember 2, 2015
This agency has a lot to offer the drug addiction treatment population, but with budget cuts and all, their impact is hardly felt in the city. They serve mostly population of clients mandated to attend drug treatment in lieu of prison time, etc and some people who voluntarily apply for drug treatment services.
Pros
Drug addiction treatment services
Cons
Poor funding, dilapidted facilities

A Zoo
Adolescent A&D Technician (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNJuly 21, 2015
This place was a zoo at time. Management had good intentions, but didn't have a clue. I enjoyed working with teen clients in their sobriety and met some amazing co-workers.
Pros
Working with teens, great co-workers.
Cons
Low pay, no consistency, chaotic enviroment at times.

Residential Technician (Former Employee) –  Dayton, OHJanuary 6, 2013
A typical day for me is coming in 7 am. Reading the daily log to know what occur on the previous shift. I then assist clients in getting their morning medication, and afterward I escort clients to breakfast. I answer any questions the clients might have. On a typical day I may have one or two intakes in the morning. I make sure I have all proper papers documented and signed along with any testing. I log all paper work into the computer after the intake. I co-facilitate an hour group in the afternoon. My co-worker and I will take time to collaborate on topics for our group sessions. I write progress notes after group session. I escort clients to off unit group activity may last two hours. At the end of the shift I check on the clients to see if there are any questions, concerns, or complaints that need to be address.
I learned how to be a team member and communicate with others regarding the team’s progress. I learned to operate in a manner so I will increase the quality of services and the knowledge of individuals with different values. I feel I get good constructive feedback that helps perform my duties. I think management showed interest in all employee as well as the clients. He oversees our position and believes in consulting with us over any issues, concerns, or complaints. I had the opportunity to work with professional people that put clients first, believe in change, and looked at individually. The toughest part of my job was to see clients leave without grasping the concept he/she can do better. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing hope in client’s eyes and
  more... grasping the difficult struggle to make a healthy change.  less

RN (Current Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNSeptember 21, 2013
I learned a lot about addiction and how to recognize the detox signals. Accepting former clients as new coworkers whom had been clean for a year was a new experience for me. Yes, this was a growing and stretching , good thing for me personally, and professionally.
