ADS began with the understanding that people can and do change and that recovery is possible. ADS began with a commitment to a better future – for every one of us affected by substance abuse.
The origins of our agency began in Guilford County in 1971. We have a long and established history of providing care for people suffering from addiction to alcohol and other drugs. ADS is the result of several mergers which brought together years of expertise and key providers of alcohol and drug prevention and treatment services in Guilford County.
Our team of professional staff consists of a Clinical Psychiatrist, a Doctor of Nursing Practice/Certified Family Nurse Practitioner/Certified Psychiatric and Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, Registered Nurses, Certified Substance Abuse Counselors, Licensed Clinical Addiction Specialists, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified Substance Abuse Prevention Consultants, and a State Certified HIV Educator.

Excellent therapist and teacher.
It helps to be able to talk with someone.
I really enjoyed coming to class. It helped me a lot. Thank you.
I learned a lot about addiction and disease and how to not feel guilty about my past. I was able to stay clean and get the help I needed by coming to class and talking and listening.
IOP and Aftercare have really helped me in my addiction and to know what to do in the future. Thanks for giving me my life back.
Everyone at both clinics (East & West) are extremely wonderful and helpful. I feel like they’re family.
ADS saved my life and are some of the greatest people I’ve ever known.
I came here wanting help and ADS has provided more than expected. I thank them very much.
