Capital Area Counseling Services (CACS) Call to South Dakota Artists


Call to South Dakota Artists

July 2019

“It is time to bring mental health care and addiction services out of the dark.  People with addictions and mental health issues are not weak or crazy.  They are people with illnesses.  All we are lacking is a first class environment where we can bring first class treatment to our neighbors and friends.  That is about to change.”  Ted Parsons, Vice Chair, Capital Area Counseling (CACS) Board of Directors.  Read more about CACS and our new treatment facility at
