ADAWS is a residential (or live-in) program for young people aged 13 to 18 who feel they have a problem with their drug use and want to withdraw or detox. Young people who come to ADAWS live in the ADAWS house for 11 days while they detox, and take part in a relapse prevention program. There are workers at ADAWS around the clock so that young people are fully supported at all times while they take part in the residential program. People who come into the program live in an ordinary house with up to three other young people. ADAWS is not like a hospital.
