Cumbria Alcohol And Drug Advisory Service
Who we are
Cumbria Alcohol and Drug Advisory Service (CADAS) provides free support for individuals who are struggling with their own, or someone else's, alcohol or drug use.
Our aim is to reduce the harm caused by alcohol and substance use, and support people and communities struggling with problematic substance use, across all ages and geographical areas of Cumbria. We want to help people live in a more resourceful, satisfying way.
Our Adult and Young People Services are designed to support anyone (aged 10+) who feels their substance use is problematic. We help people uncover the issues behind their substance use and manage them in a healthier way, focusing on the reduction of harm to themselves and others.
We also understand the impact a person's substance use can have on their loved ones or carers. Therefore our Family and Friends service is designed to suport people who are caring for, or who are affected by, someone with problematic substance use.
Finally, we work closely with professionals from a variety of different sectors, delivering high quality drug and alcohol awareness training and consultancy. This forms the basis of our preventative and awareness-raising strategy.
Every penny you donate will help us support some of the most vulnerable residents of Cumbria. Without the generous donations we receive from individuals like yourself, our service could not continue.
£5 could help a volunteer support or advise vulnerable callers over the phone for a morning.
£15 could provide specialised equipment for delivering acu-stimulation therapy to vulnerable clients in recovery.
£30 could pay for a 30 minute school assembly to make young people more aware of issues around drug and alcohol use.
£50 could pay for a one hour of recovery support work with a vulnerable client.
