The National Council on Alcoholism and other Drug Addictions-Bay Area has been providing prevention services for alcohol and other drug problems throughout the San Francisco Bay Area since 1957. This Council is an affiliate of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD), the oldest voluntary organization fighting alcoholism and drug dependence. Our organization is staffed by professionals and dedicated volunteers.
Our mission is to reduce the prevalence and consequences of the disease of alcoholism and other drug addictions. NCADA-BA seeks to prevent the disease of alcoholism and drug addictions by educating the public about chemical dependency, encouraging proper diagnosis, treatment, and a continuum of care for substance users and loved ones affected by alcohol and other drugs.
Dependency on alcohol and drugs will respond favorably to treatment and the related damage to families and loved ones can be repaired. We offer the kind of support you are looking for, including individual screening and assessment, referrals to detoxification and substance-abuse facilities, a State-approved DUI Program for first offenders, classroom-based youth programming, continuing-education for a variety of professionals and other special programs designed to further the understanding and management of chemical dependency.
