Alcohol / Drug Council of North Carolina, Affiliate of the Month - August 2016

Alcohol / Drug Council of North Carolina, Affiliate of the Month - August 2016
Mission: To reduce human suffering and the economic cost of alcoholism and other drug addiction. We advocate for prevention, early interventions and treatment that includes a system of care. History: Committed to Service - ADCNC was initially incorporated in 1955 as the United Medical Research Foundation of North Carolina. It was founded to support outreach into under-recognized health issues in our communities. As alcoholism and addiction became an urgent concern, the agency refined its focus and changed its name to United Health Services for Alcohol and Drug Abuse (UHS). Expanding its focus statewide, the agency began working on issues of access. In 1977, Dr. Jonnie H. McLeod, the renowned pediatrician and addiction advocate, presented UHS with an outstanding service award from the North Carolina Drug Commission.

Center for Open Recovery - San Francisco, CA

Center for Open Recovery - San Francisco, CA
Mission Our purpose today is both an evolution from, and a re-commitment to, Marty Mann’s vision: “to help individuals, families and entire communities discover a path of recovery.” Center for Open Recovery exists to champion, explore, create and strengthen solutions that support long-term recovery from addiction. This includes advocacy, education, and direct service in the community. History NCA-BA pursued that purpose in San Francisco for over 58 years through providing direct services such as its well-known DUI and drug diversion programs for individuals who are mandated by courts and the California Department of Motor Vehicles, as well as through counseling, prevention education, and other community outreach. In 2015, inline with NCA-BA’s founding purpose, the board and management team decided to reposition the organization to become the San Francisco Bay Area’s key proponent of long-term recovery from addiction.
