Welcome to Cadas

Here at Cadas we provide drug and alcohol services to individuals, family members and carers to support recovery in the community.

Our aim is to promote harm reduction and support people and communities coping with problematic substance use across all ages and geographical areas of Cumbria.

We support anyone from the age of 10+, who feels their substance use is problematic. We do not require people to be abstinent but we do focus on the reduction of harm to themselves or others.

We also understand the impact a person’s substance use can have on their loved ones or carers. Therefore we also offer a Parent, Carer, Family Support Service, which is designed to support people who are caring for, or who are affected by, someone experiencing problematic drug and/or alcohol use.

Finally, we work with and train a variety of professionals across all sectors, offering high quality training, consultancy and professional placements.
