NCADD provides education about alcoholism, tobacco, and other drug addictions as treatable diseases; offers prevention programs for schools, organizations, and communities; answers questions from the public, legislative bodies, and the media; and distributes a variety of publications. NCADD also offers information and referral services to children, teenagers, and adults seeking help with alcoholism, other drug dependencies, and related problems. A majority of this information is available free of charge. Up-to-date information on both inpatient and outpatient treatment resources is provided on the community, state, and national levels.
Bookstore & LibraryThe National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of the Central Mississippi Area maintains a well-stocked bookstore and a library of materials on all 12 Step Recovery groups and also serves as an additional resource for children, adolescents, adults and families who suffer from the devastating effects of substance use disorder and other chemical dependencies.
Youth Prevention ProgramsThese programs are designed for teens and/or pre-teens at risk or for children already involved in alcohol, tobacco and other drugs or those experiencing the consequences of a dysfunctional family environment. These skills are taught in a non-threatening way through the use of fictional stories, and written materials followed by discussion and an activity such as drawing or writing. Speakers and materials are made available to schools, churches, civic organizations, businesses and youth groups. These programs deal with the disease of alcoholism and other drug addictions, its effects on the family, how to recognize symptoms of the disease and how to begin recovery.
Tobacco ProgramThis program is designed to prevent the initiation of tobacco use and end teenage addiction to tobacco by involving youth in tobacco awareness efforts in our state.
