Substance Abuse Services
Outreach, Screening, Assessment and Referral (OSAR) Services:
ETCADA utilizes License Chemical Dependency Counselors (LCDC) to provide screenings and assessments for those seeking treatment for substance abuse disorders. LCDCs also conduct SASSI screenings, MIT, MIP and DWI Intervention services. The counselors are on call 24 hours and also maintain a 24 hour Crisis Line (1.800.832.1009).
ETCADA’s OSAR services are funded by Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), private pay based on sliding fee scale, other community donations and the United Way.
Substance Abuse Subtle Screening Inventory (SASSI) is a standardized screening tool generally required by the judicial system. This screening questionnaire is brief, accurate and provides a consistent substance abuse scoring measure.
