About Us

Mission Statement

CDPWS was founded to establish a forum whereby common interests and concerns are discussed, therby bringing about better communications among professional personnel; to create a voice on policy; to recommend guidelines and standards for chemical dependency facilities, programs, and personnel; to take whatever actions are deemed necessary to improve the effectiveness of work on behalf of the chemically dependent and their families.

CDPWS is the Washington State affiliate of NAADAC -- all Washington State NAADAC members are automatically members of our organization.
