1) What is the admissions process?

When you call CADA, you will speak with an admissions representative and complete a confidential screening. The admissions representative will ask you questions about yourself and the problems you're experiencing. After this initial phone screening, we will schedule a time for you to come in for a confidential assessment or we will schedule a time for you to be admitted. All CADA admissions are scheduled. We do not accept same-day admissions or walk-ins.

3) What if I don't have insurance?

If you don't have insurance, but qualify for Medicaid, our staff will help you apply for Medicaid. State funding may be available to prospective clients who are Medicaid-ineligible, do not have private insurance and who make less than a certain income. Proof of income is required for individuals seeking this type of funding. The fee structure for self-pay clients is based upon reasonable and customary rates for similar services within the service area. Affordable payment plans are available.

4) What are recovery home and Oxford houses?

Recovery homes are shelters that base their program on being substance abuse free. An Oxford House is a democratically run, self-supporting and drug-free home. The purpose of recovery homes and Oxford Houses is to provide a safe and supportive environment for people in early sobriety who are not quite ready to live completely on their own. The recovery community in Shreveport-Bossier City offers several recovery homes in which we refer clients once they’ve completed our programs.
