The people hurt most by drugs and alcohol don’t even use them; they are the CHILDREN of alcoholics and other drug dependent parents.
The National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA) believes that none of these vulnerable children should grow up in isolation and without support. NACoA is the national nonprofit 501 (c) 3 membership and affiliate organization working on behalf of children of alcohol and drug dependent parents.
NACoA’s mission is to eliminate the adverse impact of alcohol and drug use on children and families. They work to raise public awareness and provide leadership in public policy at the national, state, and local levels. They advocate for appropriate, effective and accessible education and prevention services. They also facilitate and advance professional knowledge and understanding.
NACoA, based in Maryland, can be reached at (301) 468-0985.
