I am the newest member of the board for NCADD Sacramento. From what I have seen, in my limited amount of time with the organization, the members who participate on a day-to-day basis truely are here to serve the community. My fellow board members have a genuine desire to help those in the community who have a need. In addition to having the desire to serve the community NCADD Sacramento has a variety of programs that really speak to the needs of the community. I'm proud to be a part of this organization.

The Great!

At my first board meeting I got a tour of the facilities and that tour made me realize the value, importance, and effectiveness of the programs that are offered.

NCADD is an incredibly important organization for Sacramento. This organization has state of the art facilities that are constantly put to use. The organization understands that successful rehabilitation involves treatment of the whole person (mind and body), not just physical symptoms. It is one of the few non-profits to offer TB testing. I am very impressed with the leadership of CEO Nikki Buckstead, who works tirelessly to maximize efficiency and reach more clients. Nikki is a true professional and a skilled organizational captain. She thinks long-term and has a long-term vision for NCADD.

I support NCADD for more than five years because this organization has many wonderful programs that provide meaningful service to families in need in our community. NCADD provides direct services that use, test, track and evaluate best practices effectively. NCADD believes that given the right tools to people with the disease of addiction recovery is possible for many alcoholics and addicts. Moreover, NCADD believes that their programs can even help prevent the onset of the disease in young people by educating them.

When I was working for Student Assistance Program at San Juan Unified School District, I personally received a lot of support, valuable resources and great education from NCADD. Thanks to the Executive Director, Nikki Buckstead she formed a great team who are knowledgeable and friendly to provide services to all clients.

NCADD is a terrific organization that promotes public awareness of alcoholism and other drug addiction, its causes, consequences and treatment. Treatment is provided to a broad cross section of alcoholics and addicts. Intervention information and services are available to help friends and families of addicts and alcholics help in an effective rather than co-dependent manner. I personally have used this service with success. Besides my own experiences with alcoholism and addiction I have many family members and friends with substance abuse problems and the knowledge and support I have received by being part of this organization has been significant.

The Great!

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

my personal life dealing with the addicts and alcoholics I am related to and the ones I choose as friends.

Ways to make it better...

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

increase its advocacy presence in the Capitol if I could find funding to do so.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

hearing the success stories of livees reclaimed

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, capable, professional, compassionate people.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Take a strong advocacy role in the State Capitol. Make available additional treatment services.

Ways to make it better...

I were a great fundraiser.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding with the public funding crisis in California. Ignorance of the importance and success of treatment for individuals, families and society at large.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this is lifesaving work.

Our school district, San Juan Unified School District, SJUSD), has enjoyed a long and successful partnership with NCADD for the past 18 years. The district's Student Assistance Program (SAP) had it's beginnings through a partnership with NCADD staff who provided student support groups focusing on the harmful effects of alcohol and other drugs. SJUSD has also relied on NCADD staff to provide prevention education and strategies to students and parents throughout the district. NCADD's Executive Director is well respected throughout the prevention community for her strong leadership and commitment to carry out NCADD’s mission which is to promote public understanding of alcoholism and other drug dependence as a treatable and preventable disease. I have personally been involved with NCADD and their programs for the past 15 years and appreciate the support they have provided for our students and families.
