Overview of State Alcohol and Treatment Rehabilitation Services

This paper describes the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD), which is a not-for-profit membership-based association founded in 1971 to serve individual state authorities on the issue of substance abuse. Members of the Association include representatives from the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Territories. The basic purpose of NASADAD is to foster and support the development of effective alcohol and other drug abuse prevention and treatment programs throughout every State and Association. Members of the Association are responsible for administering and managing public substance abuse treatment and prevention systems through a $1.779 billion Federal Block Grant. NASADAD consists of three components: the National Prevention Network, which provides a national advocacy and communication system for prevention; the National Treatment Network, which is dedicated to the promotion of effective, socially responsive programs, and evidence- and research-based best practices to expand and improve the publicly-funded substance abuse treatment system in each State; and, the State Methadone Authorities.
