Description of Agency
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) and its national network of Affiliates is the oldest advocacy organization in America dedicated to fighting the Nation's #1 health problem: alcoholism, drug addiction, and the devastating consequences of alcohol and other drugs on individuals, families, and communities. NCADD is built on a foundation of participation by members from the medical, scientific, and social fields that provides a multi-pronged approach to the disease of alcohol and drug addiction.
NCADD was founded in 1944 to serve a dual purpose: first, to have a proactive national education and advocacy program attacking the stigma and misunderstanding about alcoholism, treatment and recovery; second, to operate service centers in communities across the country staffed by professionals helping individuals and families with alcohol problems. These service centers have grown into the NCADD Affiliate Network. No other addiction organization has a national advocacy and community-based service approach.
