Partnership for a Drug-Free NC, Inc. (PDFNC)

At PDFNC, we believe recovery includes body, mind, and spirit. Our treatment programs help people examine and understand their mental health problems, use of drugs or alcohol, improve their self-image, and develop consistent and responsible behaviors. Treatment focuses on the whole person. PDFNC believes individuals are capable of making positive choices and acting responsibly with the involvement and support of family members, care givers and others in the community. Recovery can begin when an individual is willing to admit having a problem and become willing to make changes. Communities can promote positive values and meaningful economic opportunities to support children, adolescents, adults and their families in achieving a positive and nurturing environment.


PDFNC has three main divisions:
