Review for National Council On Alcoholism And Drug Dependence, Inc., Sacramento Region Affiliate, Sacramento, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I came to Prop 36 at NCADD after several decades of use, abuse, and addiction to alcohol and drugs. I had no life, no hope, and no future that I could see. Through the Prop 36 program and the patience and compassion of the counselors and staff at NCADD I not only acquired the tools to stay clean and sober but hope for a life of service helping others. The guidance and inspiration the counselors provided along with their encouragement enabled me to become a nationally and state certified alcohol and drug counselor, become certified to work in mental health, obtain an Associate Degree in Community Studies, and launched me on a promising career in social services working with the homeless population. Thank you NCADD.
