Azleway Substance Abuse Program
Founded in 1997, the Azleway Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) provides primary chemical dependency counseling and dual diagnosis for clients with mental health issues and concurrent co-health issues.
In 2013, Azleway’s substance abuse treatment for adolescents served 64 clients, all between the ages of 13-17, with 48 (75%) successfully completing treatment. Of the 64, 61 were still abstinent at the thirty day mark.
At Azleway, parents can be verified in to adopt in two ways, matched adoptions or foster to adopt. In matched adoptions, parents are approved only to adopt and Azleway will work with the family to match them with a child in the care of TDFPS. In foster to adopt, parents are certified as foster/adopt homes and can foster a child prior to adopting them.
In fiscal year 2012-2013, Azleway completed 27 adoptions, with ages ranging from 1-17.
