NCADD-RA, formed in the spring of 1946 as the Committee for Education on Alcoholism, affiliated with NCADD, Inc., and in July of 1946, opened an alcoholism information center. Throughout the decades NCADD-RA has expanded its services to include alcohol, tobacco and other drugs and problem gambling related educational services and resources. NCADD-RA currently provides evidence-based prevention education, both community and professional education, resources, information, referral and advocacy.
Each year, at NCADD-RA’s Annual Luncheon, we invite the community to join us as we celebrate the work of NCADD-RA, honor local individuals for their service and bring national speakers who provide cutting-edge research in our field.
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Judson Brewer, the director of research and innovation at the Mindfulness Center and associate professor of psychiatry at the School of Medicine at Brown University. Brewer is internationally known for his work in mindfulness training for addictions. Pre-order is available for Dr. Brewer’s book The Craving Mind. Payment may be made with your registration.
