Substance Abuse Resources

  • NCADA (National Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse) offers free comprehensive adolescent evaluations and counseling for young people up to age 19 and their families through their Transitional Counseling Program. TCP provides a supportive environment that enhances motivation to change, helps explore the consequences of substance use, and works to develop healthier alternatives. If treatment for chemical dependence is necessary, NCADA will make an appropriate referral and provide ongoing support until the desired treatment is available. As part of the TCP, teens will find educational assistance from mentors and tutors in the Lounge. Caregivers will find skilled counselors that promote healthy family relationships. NCADA’s offices are located at 9355 Olive Boulevard near 170 and Olive. To schedule an assessment or to get more information, call Sara Gibbs at (314) 962–3456 or send her an email at
