Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley


The Alcohol & Drug Abuse Council for the Concho Valley (ADACCV) is a nonprofit organization founded more than 50 years ago, which provides residential and outpatient care for individuals struggling with problematic substance use in central Texas, at several facilities located around the region.

Programming is available only to residents of Texas. The target population includes homeless and indigent individuals living in the 13 counties covered by the organization.


Residents stay an average of 45 days in residential care. ADACCV does not provide extensive details about its program specifics, though the center does host 12-step meetings, indicating that these inform the center’s ethos.

Residential care for women aged 18+ is provided at Sara’s House; pregnant women and women with children are also welcome at this facility, and children up to the age of 5 1/2 may reside with their mothers. There’s dedicated programming for these children while their mothers attend treatment.

The Williams House provides treatment for adult males aged 18+. Treatment includes individual and group counseling, relapse prevention training, goal setting, and help finding housing upon completion of the program.

An outpatient program lasts up to six months, and likewise focuses on relapse prevention alongside individual and group counseling. Groups are offered three evenings a week, and individual counseling is flexible to fit around a variety of schedules.

The center also hosts regular recovery meetings, such as alumni groups and 12-step meetings.

The single alum polled by to date would recommend this facility. Though A.J. noted that they were “court Ordered to go,” they gave the facility five stars for its treatment effectiveness and staff support, and four stars for the overall quality of its individual and group counseling.

Secondary sites yielded mostly positive coverage at the time of this writing, with a 4.2-star average rating based on 18 reviews on Google, and a 4.4-star average rating based on 34 reviews on Facebook, where the facility can manage its own page.[1] [2] However, many of these reviews were left by staff members, and will be discussed below. Of the few reviews left by alumni, more than one noted that treatment at ADACCV had saved their lives: “The Williams House saved my life. I felt like I was reborn after leaving the program. I can’t thank the staff and ADACC enough,” J.S. wrote in a representative review on Facebook. Though reviews yielded a handful of one-star ratings, only one negative reviewer left any accompanying commentary. “They treat you like your a child,” J.J. wrote on Google, also comparing the Williams House facility to a jail.


Multiple staff members posted on Facebook and Google to leave glowing reviews of ADACCV. “I’ve worked at ADACCV for 7 years. Day in and Day out I see how compassionate the staff are towards our clients. I’m glad I work for an awesome organization,” J.G. wrote in a representative review on Google.

ADACCV also had a three-star, a four-star, and a five-star rating on employment review sites and Glassdoor at the time of this writing.[3] [4] All three reviewers praised the way the organization cared for clients; any complaints affected only staff-specific matters such as pay and benefits. “Guarantees that appropriate levels of supervision are being carried out, and that immediate problems are corrected immediately through monitoring,” one anonymous reviewer wrote in a representative review on; “One of the pros is that you get to educate children on substance use and abuse. You really have to have a heart for teaching and for the community,” another reviewer wrote on Glassdoor.


The center accepts Medicaid and offers financial assistance; some clients are also eligible for state funding.

Residential treatment costs $145/day, and the fee must be paid upfront. Since the duration of residential treatment averages 45 days, that means an upfront payment of $6,525. Outpatient treatment costs $1,000 for a 14-week program, or $2,000 for a 26-week program.
