Alcohol and Drug Dependency Services of Southeast Iowa Philosophy

At Alcohol and Drug Dependency Services of Southeast Iowa (ADDS), patients receive high-quality residential and outpatient addiction treatment in a comfortable, non-hospital setting. The facility believes that treatment should be available to anyone, regardless of income, and offers sliding scale fees for Iowa residents.
A complete continuum of care for men and women with substance abuse issues, gambling problems, and behavioral disorders is provided, as well as education and support for family members and other loved ones.

Areas of Specialization

  • Residential Treatment
    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

  • Process Abuse Treatment
    Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.

Review by Contributors


Located in Burlington, Iowa, the Alcohol and Drug Dependency Services (ADDS) of Southeast Iowa offers a residential program and outpatient-based treatment for adults struggling with chemical dependency. The facility is part of a statewide, nonprofit network designed to help individuals overcome addiction to drugs, alcohol, gambling, and other compulsive behaviors. The full continuum of residential treatment consists of “primary treatment, medically monitored and half way services.” The facility also offers specialized program tracks for problem gamblers and DUI (OWI) offenders.


To be admitted into the residential program, clients must be referred by another treatment program or undergo an outpatient-based assessment to determine an appropriate level of care.

The residential program includes a structured schedule of individual, group, and family therapy, as well a drug and alcohol education. Residents also attend regular self-help meetings. According to the one alumni surveyed by at the time of this writing, ADDS also provides groups for trauma, PTSD, and sexual abuse.

ADDS offers two levels of outpatient treatment: an extended, maintenance-focused outpatient program and an intensive outpatient program (IOP). Consisting of nine hours of group treatment per week, the IOP also includes individual therapy, family counseling, and relapse prevention. The extended outpatient program is open to both adults and adolescents.

In terms of specialized offerings at the Burlington office, there are gambling treatment services and a prevention program. The latter strives to educate the community with Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) classes, breath alcohol testing, and drug free workplace training. Department of Transportation OWI evaluations can be conducted, and some translation services are available for non-English-speaking clients.

The facility also offers a four-year Access to Recovery program which provides supports such as job training and life skills workshops, as well as bus passes, gas cards, and clothing/hygiene items, if needed.


The ADDS treatment team includes certified and international alcohol and drug abuse counselors. The one alum polled by to date gave the facility five out of five stars for its staff support and four stars for its staff's level of training and experience.


The 20-bed residential facility is tobacco-free. The one former client surveyed by at the time of this writing gave the residential program four out of five stars for its accommodations and amenities, and five stars for its cleanliness.


Paul, the sole alum polled by at the time of this writing, gave ADDS a positive review. He awarded the facility four or five out of five stars for its treatment effectiveness, its connectivity and visitor policies, its overall quality of counseling, its integration of treatment with leisure activities, and its counselors' respect for client treatment preferences.

One Google, the facility received one four-star review and one five-star review.[1]


According to the facility's brochure materials, ADDS accepts some health insurance plans and offers a sliding fee scale for uninsured individuals and/or clients who cannot afford the full cost of treatment. Clients are required to pay $220 upon admission to the residential program for the first 21 days of residential treatment.
