Personal experience provides the heartbeat of recovery
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 29, 2015
Offering hope and help to individuals and families affected by alcoholism and drug dependence, NCADD’s new website brings together a broad range of information about alcoholism and addiction and provides visitors with immediate linkage to NCADD’s National Network of Affiliates, where they can find professional help in their own communities. With advanced navigation to accommodate mobile devices, a wealth of personal recovery stories and expanded interactive capabilities, the new site is a central source for understanding and dealing with the Nation’s #1 health problem: alcoholism and drug dependence.
The site embodies NCADD’s commitment to educating Americans that alcoholism and drug dependence are treatable and preventable and that millions do recover. Designed for ease of use on multiple platforms, visitors can learn about alcohol and drugs, gain insight on the effects of addiction on parents, young people, families and friends, get help for themselves or a family member, and learn more about recovery and how to get involved in NCADD’s efforts to increase awareness of the stigma and discrimination that often accompany alcoholism and drug dependence.
“We have reconfigured the website to reach more people,” says NCADD President Andrew Pucher, “making it easier for those searching for answers about alcoholism and drug dependence to find them -- regardless of what device they choose to utilize.” The site also offers a wide range of recovery stories -- “Personal experience provides the heartbeat of recovery,” says Pucher -- and NCADD is committed to publishing stories that reflect the full diversity of experience and opinion found within the recovering community.
Whether inquiring for oneself, a family member or friend, NCADD’s new website is a comprehensive source of information for those with a need to know more about alcoholism, drug dependence and the possibilities for recovery.
As the oldest advocacy organization in the United States addressing alcoholism and drug dependence, NCADD works at the national level on policy issues related to barriers in education, prevention and treatment for alcoholics and other drug dependent persons and their families. With a Nationwide Network of Affiliates, NCADD provides education, information, help and hope to the public.
