I began Prop. 36 program after completing an inpatient rehabilitation program. In the first level of the program, I was educated on the effects that drugs have on my body. I was given tools in regards to dealing with my family issues in a more healthy way. I was also given techniques to utilize in order to avoid a relapse. My individual counseling sessions gave me an opportunity to share my personal experiences with an educated counselor and being open to receive constructive feedback. The experience of counselors that have walked a similar road made it alot easier to be completely honest without fear of judgement. I was taught to remain teachable and to maintain a spirit of willingness and to make the same efforts in recovery that I made while I was active in my addiction. I was taught there is hope and a better life out there besides using drugs.

From the very beggining of my classes here at the NCADD of Sacramento ,CA I can honestly say that my treatment has beenh a complete success. From the start I was counceled by an outstanding intake counceler whom helped me by finding and enrolling me in a rehabilitation program. I would not have been able to stop using without it. Then I started my group sessions which has been a vital instrument in my recovery.

The counseling and support that I have received from this organization has helped me to continue to stay clean and sober. All of the counseling and other staff are supportive and always there for me.

*8 years ago my life had taken a turn for the worst and I was addicted to Meth. I was arrested at the age of 44 and then offered Prop 36 and a way to get my life back. I was ordered to do my out patient at NCADD Sacramento. I completed 1 year of treatment through the help of NCADD and Staff. After graduating from treatment I came back as a volunteer to speak to the groups about the great experience I had in treatment and changeing my life. While volunteering I started to go to school to become certified in the field of addiction. I started working in a recovery home for women and became certified. I eventually became the program Manager of that recovery home. I worked there for 6 years. In December of 2008 I was offered a counseling job at NCADD and have ben here ever since. If it weren't for the great Staff and counselors there I would not be doing what I love to do these days , working with women and children who need guidence and caring. NCADD made all the difference in my life 8 years ago, and today I have the opportunity to do same for others. NCADD saved my life!

I can say for sure that without NCADD and there staff especially Beth I probably would not have been able to cope with all that I was going through , a very tough time in my life. The schedule they kept me on and the one on one counseling was instrumental in my recovery. I have now been successfully clean and sober and a productive part of society for over 8 years . NCADD needs to be kept alive.

This was a great class we took to help us in our parenting. We were only able to attend about half the classes due to a death in the family, but we still came away with new parenting tools. Angela and Criss are fantastic at what they do. My children loved going and anticipated it every week. The classes are interactive and very interesting. I love that we start on time and end on time! We are looking forward to taking the class again in the fall to get the rest of the tools!
