An Addiction Program Specialist has been strategically located at the local DSS office to screen Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) applicants. At the Department of Social Services (DSS) office in Cambridge assessments, referrals, and case management services are provided by our DCAP counselor for parents and children involved with Child Protective Services.

Reports are electronically transmitted from the DSS office to our base location and to the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Administration as needed. Clients are then charged for substance abuse services according to their ability to pay (determined by the State Ability-to-pay Scale), based on their gross family income.
