Strengthening Families Programs
The Backbone of Every Community
Is The Strength of Its Families
We Teach Local Residents How To Deepen Those Bonds
NCADD offers this FREE family program to Sacramento County residents.
For the past 12 years we’ve helped local families learn strategies to become empowered, cohesive units. Members of each family are given the specific tools they need to feel confident and secure.
Strengthening Families is a FREE program. The NCADD team is skilled and dedicated to teaching how to:
- increase the bonds of family and communication
- encourage positive relationships with peers and family members
- resist peer pressure and manipulation
- prevent the onset of substance abuse in our youth

Strengthening Families Program, is a Model Program through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Each session includes dinner, provided by NCADD and served by our volunteers. We provide a relaxed setting for families and encourage positive communication.
After dinner, adults and youth are separated into several groups. Youth gain tools in coping with peer pressure and stress. They learn how to engage their peers and facilitators in a supportive environment. Adults learn skills to set limits with their children. They learn to identify and support positive behavior and direct communication. We introduce new and exciting connections to other community resources and people.
The last hour of Program is dedicated to Family Session. We play games, introduce family meeting styles, and create arts and crafts projects. It’s an exciting course, we want to share with as many people as possible.
The program is held at the NCADD offices located at 2143 Hurley Way, Ste. 250, Sacramento, CA 95825. We’re easy to find by bus (at the corner of Howe and Hurley) and parking is free and plentiful. Learn more about our location.
