The Prevention Council


Research shows that young people are less likely to use substances when they receive consistent messages at home, at school, and in their communities. To that end, Prevention Council staff work in a wide range of venues – from schools and summer camps to courts and family homes. Our goal is not only to prevent experimentation by teens and pre-teens, but also to provide skills, guidance, and resources to adults who interact with young people.

Another service we provide is training and education for human service professionals. Whether for in-service credit or to keep up with current trends, the agency is committed to helping our colleagues see how prevention is relevant to the work they do every day.

The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc. (NCADD)

NCADD believes that all people suffering from alcohol and drug abuse deserve the chance to be helped.


The NCADD website is designed to help you find the answers you are looking for regarding a wide array of services available to people with addiction and their families / loved ones!

Faces and Voices of Recovery is another website loaded with all sorts of great reference materials and links. Some of the great material here will help with how we tell our stories.  Recovery Messaging is very important and the linked document provides some very good starter information on the subject.  Another great resource link from this organization is Many Faces 1 Voice where you can get information on the documentary The Anonymous People and other films and videos of personal stories, and you can share yours there as well as with us at RAISaratoga!

Friends of Recovery NY is comprised of NYS residents who are in long-term recovery from addiction, their families, friends and allies. FOR-NY represents all sectors of the community, all regions of the state, and the numerous and diverse paths to recovery. FOR-NY actively organizes and mobilizes the recovery community so as to speak effectively with one voice.

New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) is another great resource showing the state governments services for people in recovery and their families and friends, as well as information and services for organizations that provide Recovery Services.

Recovery Branches is a network of resources available to organizations and those in search of avenues for long-term recovery, providing paths to follow based on areas of interest: Music, art, poetry, writing, exercise, health, sports, spiritual growth…as the tree grows, new branches emerge.

Recovery Branches was founded by Don Fertman to help those struggling with addiction to find avenues to recovery. Don is the Chief Development Officer for Subway and told his story of addiction and recovery to a national television audience on the CBS Show, Undercover Boss.

Reach Out Recovery is a website that offers many links and can assist you in finding information and meetings in literally any location.

THE NARANON FAMILY GROUPS are a worldwide fellowship for those affected by someone else’s addiction. As a twelve-step program, we offer our help by sharing our experience, strength, and hope with others in the same situation.

We’ve been there. We’ve walked in your shoes. We’ve been angry, confused, and terrified. We’ve worried, snooped, and obsessed over the addict’s behavior. We’ve watched our lives spiral out of control.

In Naranon, we find others who understand what we’re going through. We share our successes and failures, joys and sorrows, our dreams and realities. In time, with support of this group of friends, we learn a better way to live while continuing to love the addict in our life.

There are six weekly Naranon meetings that we are aware of here in the Capital Region: (click here to print a flyer for posting/distribution)
