The advantages of being an intern at The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) of Middlesex County, Inc. are many. In addition to gaining valuable work experience, interns leave NCADD with greater knowledge of social work and the application of real-world solutions for individuals who are suffering from alcohol, tobacco and other drug issues. The people who work at NCADD make interns feel welcome and vital to the work we do. Interns are put to work on real projects with real significance. Here are some important points to remember:
Qualifications vary depending upon the project, but most are for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students. Student status, however, is not a prerequisite.
NCADD does not award college credit, but many U.S. colleges and universities will recognize academic work performed while interning at the NCADD. Contact your academic advisor for instructions on how to receive credit.
Most NCADD internships are unpaid volunteer positions.
It is our goal to provide interesting and rewarding internships designed around specific NCADD programs. Because of the variety of projects available, interns come to us with backgrounds in many different fields. The program offers the chance to work behind the scenes and experience Social Work firsthand. We hope you will decide to join us. For more information, call 732-254-3344 or email us at
