Originally, the Alcohol Abuse Deterrent Program of Fort Wayne, also called The Recovery Center, was designed to keep the community safe from intoxicated drivers and those whose drug and alcohol use could and would harm others. Since then it as grown into a full service drug addiction outpatient clinic serving Fort Wayne, Indiana and its surrounding areas. Their documented success in this and other fields allowed it to expand and grow into the treatment center that it is today. They work closely with corrections and the courts to keep drug and alcohol offenders out of the prison system while giving them the treatment they need to return as productive members of society.

Their drug testing program is a no questions asked program. They will drug test their clients, students, employees, and family members depending on the need. They believe that identifying the problem and using medications and other therapies to stop it is the way to correct the issues with both criminal and social ramifications of continued drug use.

Despite the name Alcohol Abuse Deterrent Program of Fort Wayne, The Recovery Center offers help for all types of addiction and abuse. It has a highly rated outpatient program that allows you to remain at home while seeking treatment for your addiction and other mental health disorders. Its mission is to break the cycle of addiction using modern interventions such as:

  • Crisis intervention
  • Medical intercession
  • Counseling referrals and counseling
  • Case management
  • Recovery and support groups

They believe in helping people who have substance abuse issues regain their independence, dignity, and self respect. By doing this they hope to help those people who are addicts reenter society in a productive and healthy manner.

The AADP Recovery Center was established in 1989 to provide community support and supervision of those whose addiction may make them a danger to themselves or others. They admit that most of their clients have been arrested at least twice for drug or alcohol infractions including DUI and DWI. Many of their clients attend sessions as part of a plea agreement.

The Recovery Center allows clients to gain an education, gain or maintain employment, and support family while in the program. They are 100 percent funded by the clients themselves and do not receive money from grants, taxes, or other charitable organizations.

The main mode of detoxification for alcoholism at The Recovery Center is disulfram but they use other medications and methods to deter continued drug use. They regularly monitor for more than 10 substances of abuse including:

  • Alcohol
  • Synthetics
  • Designer drugs
  • Heroin and opiates
  • Stimulants such as methamphetamine and cocaine

They have a strict program for those participating in court deferments and clients can see the counselors, probation officers, and psychiatrists while they are in the program. If a deferment client tests positive for drug use, they are brought back into the court system and the deferment ends.

Not all of their programs are court related. They also offer comprehensive voluntary outpatient treatment to those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol. Their counselors, addiction specialist, and other staff are available 24 hours a day through their help lines.

    When I got a DUI I was told that I needed to get help. The Recovery Center was one of the places I called. They were very polite and friendly on the phone. They told me what I needed to do to meet the court requirements. It really seemed like they wanted to help me through the horrible experience of being an alcoholic. They offered help with the courts, detox, counseling, and even aftercare treatment. I was surprised at how knowledgeable they were about my addiction and how wide spread it was.

    Even though this is called a deterrent program, they told me that they focus on helping those who need alcohol addiction treatment and their families. Out of the ones that I called it seemed that they had the most to offer me in my situation.

    When I first started looking into treatment for my alcohol addiction, I called a lot of places and plenty of them were friendly but only the AADP offered what I needed to get off drugs. I needed treatment but couldn’t leave my family. The addiction specialist told me that I don’t have to. She said I could attend treatment and go home at night to care for my two children. This situation was ideal for me since my kids are young. The person that I spoke to explained the entire program to me in ways that I could understand. I finally feel like I know the first step I need to take. Who knew that it would be so comforting to speak with someone that was so inciteful and knowledgeable about both the facility and my addiction.
