Alcohol/Drug Council of North Carolina

The Alcohol/Drug Council of North Carolina (ADCNC) is a multi-faceted organization specializing primarily in providing information and referral to alcohol and drug treatment around the state.

The ADCNC recognizes that the Affordable Care Act impacts the treatment and recovery community in a variety of ways. Our team of navigators remind consumers that “health insurance gives you access to treatment, access to treatment gives you a better chance of recovery”. Our navigators focus on providing education, outreach, and enrollment assistance to individuals in recovery. One of our targets is to provide education on the ACA and the ever-changing health care coverage environment.

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. 

We advocate for these ideas: 

  • Prevention Works, Treatment is Effective, People Recover. 
  • Addiction must be treated as a chronic relapsing disease – like asthma or diabetes. 
  • Treatment should include an evidence-based continuum of care delivered by trained addiction professionals. 
  • Services must be accessible and affordable for everyone regardless of race, culture, religion or ability to pay.
  • Treatment and aftercare are especially important for individuals in the criminal justices system as addressing their addiction is key people changing their lives.
