Substance abuse and addiction know no boundaries. It happens to men and women, adults and children; wealthy and poor; insured and uninsured; educated and uneducated; to people of all races, nationalities, and religions. These people are our parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, children, neighbors, co-workers and friends. We love and care for them very much. How can we help them?

The Council offers a series of three free sessions, to help family members better understand addiction, how they are affected, ways to help, and resources available to help. These groups are typically small in size and confidentiality is respected. Pre-registration is encouraged.

The next Family Education Program is: October — Tuesday, Oct. 1 and 8, and Wednesday, Oct. 9 from 5:30 – 7:30pm At CNCAA, 219 W 2nd St, Grand Island

For more information about this program, 12-Step support group meeting times, or other resources available, please feel free to contact CNCAA at 308-385-5520 or stop in the office, 219 West 2nd Street, Grand Island. The sooner you get help, the better. Like Heart Disease and Diabetes, Alcoholism/Addiction is a disease that is chronic, progressive, and potentially fatal if not recognized and treated. CNCAA’s Executive Director Connie Holmes says, “The sooner we get help for an addiction, the better. The Council is able to offer individuals and families the education and support that may help them help the person with alcoholism or other drug addiction get into a program of recovery. We really want to help individuals and families with problems related to substance abuse and/or addiction get help sooner. Interventions can save lives.”
