NCADD and our National Network of Affiliates provide an array of programs and services, including:

Information and Referral–NCADD provide unbiased, professional, objective information and referral support for individuals and family members faced with alcohol or drug problems ensuring that those in need have access to mutual aid/support groups and/or appropriate treatment services regardless of age, sex, race, religion, creed or socio-economic status..  For many people, NCADD is the first organization they think of to call for help.  In fact, last year alone, over 713,000 people called NCADD seeking help for themselves, a friend or a family member.

Prevention, Education and Training — NCADD’s National Network of Affiliates provide community-based prevention, education and training programs, as well as local media awareness campaigns designed to meet community needs.

Community Awareness –Through presentations at schools, churches, youth centers, senior centers, civic and community organizations, we work to increase awareness and understanding of the disease and the potential for treatment and recovery.

Advocacy — NCADD has been a strong advocate since its inception over 65 years ago.  We advocate for the rights of alcoholic and drug dependent persons and their families at the local, state and national levels of government.  Over the years NCADD has played a key role in advocating for warning labels, the 21 purchase age, drinking and driving, parity for alcoholism and addiction treatment and healthcare reform/access to alcohol and drug treatment.

Intervention, Treatment and Recovery Support–Depending on community need, some Affiliates provide intervention, as well as treatment services ranging from inpatient, outpatient, sober housing and recovery support.
