Welcome to the New Hampshire Alcohol & Drug Abuse Counselors Association website. NHADACA is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing addiction professions in NH. Through education and advocacy, we strive to enhance the knowledge and skills of addiction professionals, increase awareness of addiction issues in NH, and promote programs and policies that ensure access to high quality services for NH citizens struggling with addiction.
NHADACA, formed in 1986, has grown to be the leading provider of continuing education for addiction professionals in NH. In addition, NHADACA has forged strong relationships with policy makers and stakeholders throughout the state in order to ensure that they have access to accurate, timely information about addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery. This website is designed to be another avenue for ensuring the availability of information for consumers, professionals, and the general public. Take a look around, feel free to contact us with questions, and please check back often for updated information.
The purposes of NHADACA are to promote and encourage the organization of addiction professionals; to examine, endorse, and encourage competent and comprehensive programs for the education of addiction professionals and those working with people experiencing addiction; to advocate on behalf of alcohol and drug issues that impact those experiencing addictions; to provide education to NHADACA membership on public policy issues; to increase the competence and knowledge of individual members and the general public; to represent the appropriate role of addiction professionals at the local, state and national levels; to engage in such other related activities as may be desirable or required to fulfill the purposes and objectives of NHADACA; and to provide assistance to those NHADACA members who may be experiencing difficulties which interfere with their personal and/or professional well-being.
It is with a very sad and heavy heart that I write to
deliver this news. A very dear friend, colleague and NHTIAD presenter, Dr.
Patricia Mulready passed away earlier this week. The news was sudden and
unexpected to us all.
Pat has presented numerous trainings with the NH Training
Institute on topics that include spirituality, nutrition, adolescent brain, and
understanding psychiatric medications among others. She has touched and helped
transform countless lives, at times quite profoundly. Her gifts, compassion,
inquisitiveness and dedication were unparalleled. Some of you signed up for her
every training -- and she loved seeing each and every one of you. She loved
coming to NH. She loved presenting trainings and seeing all of her NH friends
as much as we appreciated and loved her. I know I am not alone in saying that
her life is celebrated and she is greatly missed here as her energy journeys
My condolences to all of you who join in this significant
