NCADA is the place to turn for matters related to alcohol and drugs.
Founded in 1965, the National Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse - St. Louis Area (NCADA) is a community health agency serving seven counties in eastern Missouri. We provide crisis counseling to approximately 2,500 individuals, and prevention and education services to over 100,000 people annually.
With alcohol and other drug abuse as the leading contributors to teen death and injury in this country, one of NCADA’s major goals is to teach young people the skills needed to resist the pressures to use and abuse chemicals. We offer youth leadership programs, community service projects, drug-free alternative activities, and a wide range of school-based prevention services.
As a certified prevention agency of the Missouri Department of Mental Health, Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse, NCADA provides information and education, intervention planning, counseling and referral, and a vast array of prevention services. NCADA is also a United Way member agency and meets the 20 Better Business Bureau standards for charity accountability.
