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 is committed to assisting its members to a greater awareness and acceptance of alcoholism, other chemical addictions, and prevention issues. 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-Steps of recovery, 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 for this vital work; you are invited to join NCCA in this endeavor.
Sign up here for more information on this NCCA project as it develops and to learn how you can be an advocate as we share recovery resources with your parish council, religious education program, or other Catholic community initiative.
Please add me to your NCCA/Guest House contact list so that I can advocate for this cause.
