Review for National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of Middlesex, East Brunswick, NJ, USA
NCADD has played a pivotal role in bringing education and connections with resources in the field of prevention of alcohol and drug dependence. As a nurse who coordinated the care of pregnant women with addiction, I applaud the efforts of the team at NCADD that provided a connection with professionals, community representatives, individuals with dependence and addiction, and government officials.
In addition, the organization enlightened the public on the dangers of prescription drug use and the problem of availability of internet access to purchase drugs without a prescription. Deaths due to overdose of these drugs were the consequence and this was also presented.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
meeting with individuals outside of hospital care. I have also been able to refer family members for education for them to identify teen drug use and to access education about the effects of alcohol and drugs and services.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
seek out public support of NCADD's efforts.
