Revitalized NCCA expands the Guest House Mission
Almost every family has been touched by addiction. That’s why, over 70 years ago, the National Catholic Council on Addiction (NCCA) was formed to bring a message of healing and hope to addicted persons and those who love them. Affiliated with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the NCCA has a legacy of assisting its members to a greater awareness and acceptance of alcoholism, other chemical addictions, and prevention issues.
Today, with the support of Guest House, the NCCA is announcing a new initiative that seeks to connect people with existing resources in order to help bring healing and recovery to more people struggling with addictions.
While the NCCA embraces the 12-Step recovery approach, they gratefully acknowledge that healing is ultimately spiritual and comes with a connection to God. In this sense, the NCCA legacy expands the Guest House mission by extending its reach beyond ordained clergy and religious to the Catholic lay community. We seek advocates who can join us in this vital work and spread the word that free resources, with proven efficacy, are available.
