National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc., Sacramento Region Affiliate
June 29, 2010

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.
