Access to Treatment
"Addiction is a treatable, chronic medical disease involving complex interactions among brain circuits, genetics, the environment, and an individual’s life experiences. People with addiction use substances or engage in behaviors that become compulsive and often continue despite harmful consequences.
Prevention efforts and treatment approaches for addiction are generally as successful as those for other chronic diseases." *
NCADD-Maryland hosts a variety of educational, advocacy and fundraising events each year. Our events often feature some of the most widely-recognized, and sought after, local and national speakers on the topics of prevention, intervention, addiction, treatment and recovery.
