Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide quality and compassionate substance use and co-occurring services, empowering individuals to develop responsible, healthy lifestyles.


Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services, Inc. was initiated as a department of the Cameron, Elk, McKean, and Potter County Mental Health Mental Retardation Joinder in 1972 with seed money from the Law Enforcement Assistance Act (LEAA).  Drug and alcohol prevention services, outpatient counseling and the residential treatment facility, Maple Manor, was established at that time through LEAA grant funding.

In 1987 Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services separated from the CEMP MH/MR joinder and became incorporated as a separate private non-profit agency. Potter County became its own SCA under the county government. Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services, Inc. (ADAS, Inc.) was contracted by the county commissioners to serve as the Single County Authority (SCA) for Cameron, Elk, and McKean Counties.  ADAS, Inc. was established as a Private Executive Commission, which is overseen by a Governing Board that is made up of eleven members; three from Cameron County, four from Elk County and four from McKean County.  The appointment of Board Members is approved by the County Commissioners.

Whereas most SCA’s act as an administrative entity providing oversight and contracting for services, Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services, Inc. was established as a Functional Unit facilitating direct treatment services. ADAS, Inc. provides prevention, early intervention, case management, recovery support, outpatient treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, and adult residential treatment services for residents of Cameron, Elk, McKean and Potter Counties. Additional contracts are in place with surrounding Single County Authorities for services provided at Maple Manor

Additional contracted services offer choice, specialized services, and expand the continuum of services available to consumers. ADAS, Inc. maintains contracts with other providers for outpatient, intensive outpatient, detoxification, short and long term rehabilitation, halfway house, and partial hospitalization.

Treatment services are offered on a fee for service basis.  ADAS, Inc. is part of the provider network of most insurance companies. Services are also offered on a sliding scale. As the Single County Authority, ADAS, Inc. also receives funding to subsidize treatment for low income uninsured individuals residing in Cameron, Elk and McKean Counties. Pregnant women and injection drug users are priority populations for treatment.

Agency Goals

  • Assess and monitor community needs in relation to the incidence and prevalence of alcohol, tobacco and other drug abuse.
  • Provide, or make available through contracted services, a full continuum of drug and alcohol prevention, treatment and support services to meet community needs.
  • Review and evaluate the effectiveness of drug and alcohol services.
  • Provide training to agency staff and community stakeholders to enhance local knowledge and skills to address drug and alcohol issues.
  • Engage in collaborative processes with stakeholders and community members to address substance abuse concerns.
  • Expand awareness of programs and services available to reduce and prevent substance abuse.

Client Testimonials

“Before I came into the Maple Manor, I had no intentions of switching my life around.  I am 12 days into the program and I am learning a lot of new tools to recover when I get out.   I really recommend this program for people willing or wanting to recover.”


“The Manor not only saved my life but changed my outlook on life completely.”


“My experience at the Manor was very positive.  Individual work with my counselor and group therapy activities have provided me with victory through surrender and humility.  I have gained a sense of self and a renewed love of life I never thought possible.”


“The Maple Manor Saved my life, the staff gave me the tools to rediscover the true me and my inner strengths to build on in my recovery, they gave me home and life.  I am fortunate today and can give back what was freely given to me.”
