The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc.(NCADD), founded in 1944, is a national, nonprofit organization combating alcoholism, other drug addictions, and related problems. NCADD's major programs include prevention and education, public information, public policy advocacy, and publications.
