NCSGAR is so essential because it helps individuals that desperately need help for themself and their affected family. Many do not have insurance or the resources to acquire the solution.
One of their counselors made a counselling suggestion that was a need in our son's circumstances.
NCSGAR bring individuals from desperate circumstaces to being productive and peaceful individuals who affect many other lives (family, employers and even other unfamiliar individuals.
Besides our son, or neighbor has made a total recovery from alcohol dependance to a very happy and positive person.

This organization needs to be publicized. They relieve so many from different addictions to becoming productive people. Cured individuals actually become supportive fininacially and good citizens that actually reduced negative cost to society. Most of all they become people who are happy with who they are and serve others

NCSGAR has been a part of my life since 1991- I have witnessed firsthand the trials and tribulations the founder of NCSGAR had poured into his organization to make it successful. Personally I have witnessed him help scores of individual’s receive treatment and become successful mentors themselves for scores of other people seeking help from addiction as well. I speak with sincerity about his commitment in helping others, because I have leaned on him not only as a friend over the years but as a life coach. I for one owe him a large debt of gratitude of the years of our common bond of addiction.

Drugs, alcohol - any substance of abuse - impacts individuals, economies and society with devastating effects. Families are ruined, health effects are irreversible many times and needless heartaches become unbearable. THERE IS A SOLUTION! Through intervention and treatment, many drug addicts and alcoholics can return to life to become fully functioning, competent, responsible members of society. But treatment is essential to this recovery. Without intervention, the alcoholic/addict continues the downward spiral into the abyss of chronic disease. Through the help of this charitable non-profit, thousands of people have recovered from a seemingly hopeless state of mind and body. The effective treatment options they offer have saved countless lives and families.

I would like to thank the National Corporation for Substance Abuse Recovery for helping me get my husband back. With the funding we received for substance abuse treatment, he was able to get the help that he desperatly needed. We don't have the extra money or the insurance coverage for treatment. He has successfully completed the program and is now a produtive part of society. We were able to pay back the money on a reasonable schedule, so now they can fund more people in treatment. Thank You so much, Lana A.

Having firsthand experience of what alcohol, drug and gambling addiction can do to an individual and his or her family, I can value the cost of recovery! The problem for many is the ability to afford proper Treatment. National Corporation for Substance Abuse Recovery is there to help that individual who wants recovery but cannot afford the cost of treatment at that moment in his or her life. This brings me to my favorite part about National Corporation for Substance Abuse Recovery- As I was taught in my program, there are “no bail-outs” for gaining recovery- All individuals who receive financial aid from National Corporation for Substance and Abuse Recovery are asked to repay that debt for their recovery, allowing NCSGAR the ability to send another individual thru treatment.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways.

I have witnessed the help that this organization provided for individuals that would not have had any alternative to receive the help that they needed because of their financial status. With this help, they have been able to regain their ability to go forward with a better life and repay their obligation for the help they received. This method of treatment and "giving back" is proving to be one of the best "recoveries" for addiction.

I highly recommend the National Corporation for Substance Abuse. Without their help in funding my treatment, I woudn't have been able to get the help i needed to beat my addictions. A first class organization that really cares about the individuals that go through their programs. Thanks again for your help! Mike A.

This organization has assisted many with treatment and counseling that would not have received it from any other provider. It is recognized as one of the most outstanding and beneficial services. Many individuals cannot afford to receive help from the private sector because of the high cost for recovery and most will go untreated if they are not able to receive help from this organization. I have personally seen individuals make complete recovery after having received treatment through this organization. We need to continue to support them because of how substance abuse is destroying so many lives....young and old.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing individuals get help that would not have gotten any if it wasn't for this organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Have friends, associates, family and corporations more aware of the need to keep this organization operating.

I have been a volunteer member of the Board of Directors of this charity for almost 20 years. The thousands of clients that have been served during this period speaks very highly of the management and staff. The disease of chemical dependency and its adverse influence on every community has reached epidemic levels. With the continued healthcare problems in this country, the numbers of individuals needing the support of this charity are significantly increasing. The methods employed by this organization to continually turn over donated funds to pay for client services is extremely unique and gives each donor a "huge" bang for the buck.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching the number of clients being served each year.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

draw more national attension to the need for funding a program of this nature. The unique payback requirements simply allow further funding for future clients.
