“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
— Benjamin Franklin

Educate, Collaborate, Motivate
In 1974, in response to a deeply felt community need, a citizen study group recommended the formation of a drop-in center on Prather Avenue under the name of the Jamestown Area Council on Alcoholism. The drop-in center provided a place for alcoholics and their families to meet with counselors for intervention services and to begin building a new alcohol-free life. Affiliation with the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) began in 1975. In response to increased service requests from the North County, the Council opened a program office in Dunkirk in 1979. Both offices provide prevention services for alcohol and other drugs to the Chautauqua County community.
