The National Council on Alcoholism and other Drug Addictions – Bay Area (NCA-BA), has been serving individuals, families, schools, and the broader community across the San Francisco Bay Area region since 1957 – by providing prevention services, educational resources, treatment options, referrals, diagnosis, testing, and other critical support for those who are struggling with the impact and consequences of alcoholism and other substance use disorders.
Please let us know how we can help you and those you care about who may be struggling with or affected by substance abuse. Contact us by calling: 415-296-9900 or email: email@example.com
We are a independent nonprofit organization, based in San Francisco, led by a volunteer board of directors, staffed by a team of 20+ dedicated professionals, working in collaboration with other community based non-profits, private funders, corporate partners, and government agencies — to provide Bay Area residents with the services and programs they need to build healthier lives, free of addiction.
We are proudly affiliated with the New York based, National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc. – the oldest voluntary alcoholism health agency in the United States.
We understand that one of the most prevalent consequences of addiction is stigma – which can lead to shame, denial and isolation – - rather than to a path of recovery. NCA-BA is committed to fighting stigma so that those with substance use disorders can get the help they need rather than be paralyzed by fear, judgement, and lack of understanding.
We seek to raise public awareness, mobilize communities, foster and support recovery, provide hope and healing and help our youth through prevention, education and changing perceptions. In addition to our regular offering of classes, services and programs, we design special opportunities throughout the year to reach a broader audience so that we may engage community leaders, friends, educators, health professionals, and the media about alcoholism and other substance use disorders, their medical complications, and related social and economic consequences. Please join us to be part of the Solution.
