The Maryland affiliate of NCADD, a 501c3, tax-exempt organization, was formed in 1988. We are one of over 90 NCADD affiliates operating in the country. In our 28-year history public acceptance and recognition has grown in acknowledging NCADD-Maryland as the State's preeminent treatment/recovery education, advocacy and public policy organization. We feel we are uniquely positioned to provide both a local and statewide perspective on issues related to alcoholism, drug dependence and barriers affecting treatment accessibility.
To raise public awareness of alcoholism and drug dependence issues across the state, while working to ensure those affected by the disease of addiction have the resources necessary when accessing treatment and sustaining recovery.
