Our History

The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence of Hudson County (NCADD Hudson) was established in 1988 as a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization. Its original name was Hudson County Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse in 1995 the name changed to NCADD Hudson and in 2002 the present name of Partners In Prevention was adopted. Our founding mission stated: The mission of Partners in Prevention is to combat and defeat alcoholism and drug abuse in the community through involvement, consultation, education, advocacy, and cooperative relationships with numerous organizations in Hudson County.

The agency was founded after the Hudson County Board of Freeholders identified the need for a non-governmental, county-wide organization to serve as a substance abuse prevention resource center. Community leaders, led by the Reverend Robert Alemy, responded by organizing the agency. Seed money to help launch the new agency was provided through grants from Hudson County and the New Jersey Department of Health.
