Community Behavioral Health

Council of Substance Abuse Directors

The Council’s membership consists of 14 community-based chemical dependency/addiction treatment services providers. Acting together, in partnership with the State of South Dakota, CSAD represents a virtual statewide system of coordinated care. This group represents the “front-line” or initial point of contact for most persons in the state who seek comprehensive alcohol/drug prevention, treatment, or rehabilitation services.

Additionally, skilled professionals are available to assist schools, communities, community groups, clubs, organizations, to develop local drug and alcohol prevention efforts.

We believe: 

  • No one wants to experience a problem with alcohol or other drugs. No one wants a family member, a friend, a loved one, a husband, or a wife to suffer through this daunting life experience.
  • Yet, despite the best of intentions, about 10% of South Dakotans will need help with just such a problem at some point in their lifetime.
  • The help people need can vary. One thing that is for certain: If you become dependent on a mood altering chemical, primary treatment and aftercare are likely the best allies. Family or individual counseling and treatment can be of critical assistance in repairing your life.
  • Years of experience and a significant body of research have taught us several key facts:
    • Treatment can and does help people who are willing to work hard at change;
    • Families are deeply affected by the problems associated with substance abuse problems;
    • Family members can improve the quality of their lives, even if their loved one doesn’t recover;
    • Chemical dependency is no respecter of age, sex, religion, race, or any other factors for that matter. It can and DOES happen to ALL of society; and
    • Addictions are far less about moral character than they are about loss of control.
