APDS is an innovative behavioral healthcare center, established in 1988, that uses the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria guidelines and models of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques for the prevention, treatment, and recovery from alcohol and other drugs use disorders.
APDS provides prevention education classes to male perpetrators for the intervention and prevention of domestic violence. We provide a 9-week summer day camp for 120 youth ages 6 to 12 with a focus on social emotional learning and character counts development. APDS is certified by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS).
Cost for services are based on customer’s household income. APDS is primarily funded by the ADAMH Board of Franklin County. The support of ADAMH allows APDS to provide services to many individuals and families that typically can’t afford quality counseling services.
APDS accepts most major insurances including Medicaid and self-pay. APDS services are offered to all populations: No one is denied services due to race, age, ethnicity, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or economic status.
