Our vision is a community where there are no problems associated with alcohol, tobacco, or drug use.

The National Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse – St. Louis Area (NCADA) is a community health agency focused on serving the St. Louis area.  We advocate for solutions with local, state, and federal policymakers; provide information and education to the general public, professionals, and students to prevent alcohol, tobacco, and drug abuse; deliver assessments, interventions, and unbiased referrals to treatment.
