About Us

In all matters related to alcohol, tobacco, and other drug abuse, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse – St. Louis Area (NCADA) has been the place to turn since 1965.

Substance use disorder is the leading contributor to death and injury among young people. This is unacceptable. Teenagers and young adults—with their lives full of promise and untapped potential—are too often struck down from a condition which is not only treatable, but preventable.

So one of the NCADA’s major goals is to teach young people the skills needed to resist the pressures to use and abuse drugs. We offer proven, evidence- and best-practices-based curricula for every grade from K-12 in nearly 300 schools in the region.

Additionally, we offer youth leadership programs and a wide range of non-school-based prevention services. In a normal year the NCADA offers prevention and education services to over 100,000 people.

NCADA is a proud member of the United Way, meets the 20 Better Business Bureau standards for charity accountability and was a 2018 recipient of the BBB TORCH Award for exceptional customer service and ethical business practices.
