St. Louis News: National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Launches “The Wellness Council”
St. Louis, MO – Yesterday, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse-St. Louis Area (NCADA) announced the formation of its young friends organization, The Wellness Council, dedicated to promoting a healthy lifestyle and holistic wellbeing.
“We saw a gap that needed to be addressed.” said Nichole Dawsey, Executive Director of NCADA. “We know that people crave opportunities to authentically socialize and engage with their peers. While the notions of ‘wellness’ and ‘wellbeing’ have become trendy, we must challenge the concept that socializing must occur over drinks at a happy hour.”
