ABOUT US

Who We Are

Since 1957, NCADD-OC has led the effort to reduce alcohol, tobacco, and drug use among youth in Orange County. Our success is built on fostering collaboration, advocating for policy changes, developing grassroots partnerships, and providing the highest-quality community, school, and family programs.

Now as Partners4Wellness, we are taking a more holistic approach to well-being. We’ve expanded our services to include programs aimed at enhancing mental wellness and emotional competency.

Education + Advocacy + Partnerships = Change
