National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence



The Carteret Public Schools have partnered with the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) of Middlesex County, Inc. to create PATHWAYS, Carteret's School-based Youth Services Program. This partnership creates a safe, structured environment within the school to address the social and health needs of our students, ensuring that they are better able to graduate, become employable or continue their education, and lead physically and mentally healthy, drug-free lives.

PATHWAYS is open before, during, and after school, including two evenings per week until 8:00 p.m. Special programming is also scheduled on designated weekends, and a full summer program is available. Most services are free of charge and open to all Carteret High School students and their families.
