2013 HIGHLIGHTS


As we entered our 33th year in existence, NCADD continued efforts designed to maintain its position as the preeminent prevention agency in the county. We continued to provide a variety of services in several formats to meet the needs of a diverse audience.  In addition to providing a wealth of information on our website, NCADD published several monthly electronic newsletters in addition to its quarterly printed Prevention First! and has developed educational programs for health care professionals, educators, parents, children, and others facing the challenges and effects of substance abuse every day. 

NCADD’s preventionists continue to help individuals and organizations. And we’ve done so with one primary purpose — dispense knowledge and provide tools necessary to reduce or eliminate problems associated with the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.

Our staff of professionals, interns and volunteers, guided by our Board of Trustees, continued to deliver hundreds of programs to thousands of individuals throughout the county.  Some of the highlights for 2013 include:

  • Our staff handled 156 referral requests by phone or in person. Our website handled more than 40.
  • NCADD responded to over 1,600 requests for information, including over 840 in-person visits to our offices in East Brunswick.
  • NCADD’s public awareness efforts resulted in media coverage valued at over $254,000 and reached over 13.7 million individuals.
  • NCADD preventionists delivered over 830 in-school presentations that reached over 20,100 students throughout the County.
  • Over 1,000 of our eLearning addiction courses were taken by professional seeking certification or re-certication.
  • WNBI-FinalNCADD implemented its newest prevention program, We’re Not Buying It 2.0 in school districts thoughout Middlesex County.

 

  • In 2013, Pathways, NCADD’s School-Based program, implemented at Carteret high school continued its awamzing growth. Over 250 youth were provided with individual counseling service resulting in over 1470 individual counseling sessions. Additionally, over 230 youth were provided with group counseling services, which resulted in 83 group sessions delivered.  In total, Pathways provided clinical services to 419 unduplicated individuals (individual or group.)
  • On May 18th, 2013 a crowd of over 150 people gathered in Carteret to “take a step in the right direction” against bullying and the toll bullying takes on our youth, when Pathways organized its first-ever bullying prevention walkathon.
  • In the fall of 2013, as part of its planned activities for National Recovery Month, NCADD presented “Pass It On... An Evening With Bill W. & Dr. Bob.” This unique, inspirational and often hilarious theatrical bill_and_bobproduction celebrates sobriety and serves as the center piece for an international recoveryeducation project –raising awareness about the solution to North America’s Number One Public Health Issue – the disease of Alcoholism and Addiction.
  • During the same timeframe, NCADD celebrated the 2013 National Recovery Month by dedicating its “Tree of Hope” to the New Brunswick Counseling Center. The “Tree of Hope” is awarded annually to an organization that promotes recovery from addiction. 
  • Two years after launching its Online Self-Administered Help Tool, the website registered visits by over 600 individuals and provided treatment options to over 200.
  • In the fall of 2013, NCADD’s “We’re Not Buying It 2.0” WNBI program was recognized at the NCADD National Annual Conference of Affiliates. WNBI is a substance abuse prevention program that focuses on developing digital media literacy skills among sixth through eighth grade students.
  • On December 4, 2013, the Coalition for Healthy Communities held its 10th annual Young Women’s Conference. The event saw participation by 18 high schools from across Middlesex County. A total of 140 young women attended this full day conference, which was held at the St. John Neumann Conference & Banquet Center in Piscataway.
  • In 2013, NCADD marked a special milestone when it completed development on of all 45 online CADC addiction training courses.
