Leatherstocking Education on Alcoholism/Addictions Foundation
LEAF is a private, nonprofit, volunteer health organization founded in 1982. Our goal is to reduce the serious personal, social and economic consequences of alcoholism, other drug addictions and associated problems. At LEAF, we identify community needs, advocate for policies that address local problems, and provide a range of quality programs that work right here in Otsego County.
LEAF’s mission is:
- To prevent addictions and associated problems.
- To educate the community about the risks of excessive alcohol and other drug use and about alcoholism and other addictions as treatable family diseases.
- To encourage proper diagnosis, treatment and appropriate care for individuals and families.
Over the years, many Otsego County residents have turned to LEAF for help and found themselves on the threshold of recovery. More than ever LEAF remains committed to reclaiming lives, strengthening families and building healthy communities in Otsego County.
