On average, nearly 50% of Americans will make a New Year's resolution. Many of these resolutions will focus on health. But being healthy is more than just exercising, eating right and drinking water. Whether you are young, old or somewhere in between, prevention and early detection can significantly reduce your risk of illness, disability or an early death. As baseball legend Mickey Mantle once said, "If I knew I was going to live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself." Many of us probably feel the same about our current health status.
"Since I have gotten sober, I have gotten a job and regained the trust of my family. NCADD saw potential within me, and gave me a safe space to feel like I could make a difference in this world."
These words were written by a young man whose life has been completely turned around - and this turnaround could not have happened without YOU. Because people like you have generously supported the National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence (NCADD), lives have been touched, lives have been transformed and - most importantly - lives have been SAVED.
