I have been searching for an organization to become involved with that reaches out to the community and helps groups of people who have been marginalized and have experienced unfortunate setbacks. During a board meeting and my online review of the NCADD non-profit I have learned that their array of programs are very comprehensive and have a proven success record as evidenced by the many members of the Sacramento County community that have learned to overcome alcoholism and drug dependence. I am very much looking forward to the next Board meeting in which I plan to join the Board.

The Great!

From 2003 to 2009, I worked as a parole agent for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. I supervised numerous parolees who had been ordered by local courts and/or the parole board to attend Prop 36 drug treatment in lieu of being returned to state prison. NCADD was one of the Prop 36 drug treatment providers. Each week I met with staff at NCADD to review the progress of the parolees. We looked at their attendance and anti-narcotic test results. We encouraged those who were doing well and even rewarded some with $5 gift cards. Those who were struggling were offered additional services such as relapse groups, increased testing, detox, and residential treatment. These evaluations were eventually forwarded to the appropriate courts and/or parole board for further consideration. NCADD helped several of these parolees regain their sobriety which allowed them to remain in the community. This made the community of Sacramento a safer place and saved the taxpayers money in incarceration costs.

The Great!

I have personally watched the tremendous growth of several parolees who were able to remain clean and sober and become productive citizens in our society, thanks to the service they received through NCADD.
