Partners in Prevention

History

The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of Hudson County (NCADD Hudson) was established in 1988 as a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. Its original name was Hudson County Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse; in 1995 the name changed to NCADD Hudson and in 2002 the present name of Partners In Prevention was adopted.

The agency was founded after the Hudson County Board of Freeholders identified the need for a non-governmental, county-wide organization to serve as a substance abuse prevention resource center. Community leaders, led by the Rev. Robert Alemy, responded by organizing the agency. Seed money to help launch the new agency was provided through grants from Hudson County and the New Jersey Department of Health.

Partners In Prevention works to prevent substance abuse in individuals, families, schools and the broader community, and serves thousands of individuals across Hudson County.

Mission

The mission of Partners in Prevention is to combat and defeat alcoholism and drug abuse in the community through involvement, consultation, education, advocacy and referral programs, working with individuals, groups and associations throughout Hudson County, the State of New Jersey, and the nation.
