ADDS COVID-19 Updates

EFFECTIVE March 29TH, 2021

ADDS will be going back to in-person evaluations and treatment services effective January 4th, 2021.  All evaluations will be on a walk-in basis.  Please see the walk-in schedule below.  ADDS will also resume providing Federal drug screens (urinalysis or UAs), AND all other UAs (including pre-employment drug screens) on a walk-in basis as of March 29, 2021.  If you have any questions, please call an ADDS office – see contact information at the bottom of this page.

To protect the health of the public and our staff if you come to an ADDS office:

Please call ahead to cancel appointments if you have symptoms of the Coronavirus!  See Iowa Department of Public Health’s instructions on this.

When you arrive, you must wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, and take your temperature on entry.  Please bring your own mask! ADDS staff will ask you some COVID-19 questions.  You may be refused services and referred to appropriate medical care based on display of symptoms and temperature check results.  Situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis where staff or clients have a medical excuse or reason that they cannot wear a mask for prolonged periods of time.

If you come in with disposable gloves on, you must still use hand sanitizer and need to dispose of the gloves you had on your hands when you came in.

All clients in treatment programs will be required to sign off on this acknowledgement and this will be documented in their electronic health record chart.

Refusal to follow our safety procedures will result in refused services.  In the case that staff need to turn a client away due to risk of COVID-19 or any other reason, this will be documented and then staff will notify any applicable parties of this refusal as needed with valid consent on file.

Thank you for understanding.

This is a difficult time for everyone, and if you are struggling, don’t hesitate to call our offices. You can find our contact info just below this message, just scroll down.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day: April 24, 2021

According to the 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.9 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. This same survey showed that the majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. The DEA’s Take Back Day events provide an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths and address a crucial public safety and public health issue.

“Properly disposing of unused medicines is one way we can all help build healthier communities,” said Dale Woolery, Director of the Governor’s Office of Drug Control Policy.  “Iowans have another opportunity to contribute as part of ‘spring cleaning,’ by safely tossing leftover medicines at designated collection sites April 24th, and year-round at nearly 400 permanent Take Back sites across the State.” Iowans have safely disposed of nearly 78 tons of obsolete prescription drugs over the last 10 years of National Prescription Drug Take Back Day events.

Iowa’s next Prescription Drug Take Back Day is April 24, 2021. To learn more about this initiative and find a collection site near you, please click this link: TBDRX
