NCADD-New Jersey works in partnership
with and on behalf of individuals, families,
and communities affected by alcoholism
and drug dependence, promoting recovery
through excellence in prevention and treatment
We have been working for over 30
years to reduce the stigma associated
with addictive illness and to advocate
for and promote recovery. This is the
same mission established by Marty Mann,
who founded the National
Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence
in 1945. As an affiliate of the national
organization, we have been a strong
advocate for policies and laws that
increase the access to and availability
of treatment and recovery services.
We also strive to eliminate policies
that are discriminatory towards those
suffering with addictive illness.
We sponsor a wide range of programs
and services designed to fulfill our
mission and goals. These activities
include publishing a bimonthly news
includes both state and national news
and other features about addiction.
NCADD-NJ also operates the Substance
Abuse Initiative (SAI) and Behavioral
Health Initiative (BHI). The SAI is
a statewide Work First New Jersey welfare-to-work
program funded by the New Jersey Department
of Human Services. The goal of the SAI
is to eliminate addiction as a barrier
to employment. Other agency programs
include general advocacy and community
education services funded through a
grant from the Open Society Foundations.
These are just a few of the
ways we work to address the problem
of drug and alcohol addiction. Please
