The people hurt most by drugs and alcohol don’t even use them: they are the CHILDREN of alcoholics and other drug-dependent parents. The National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA) believes that none of these vulnerable children should grow up in isolation and without support. NACoA is the national nonprofit 501(c)3 membership and affiliate organization working on behalf of children of alcohol and drug-dependent parents.
