NECA is the largest regional charity working in the area of substance use/misuse.

Established in 1974, NECA is a registered charity and was founded initially as the North East Council on Alcoholism. The scope of NECA work widened as problems associated with drugs and solvents became prevalent, and to signify the increasingly diverse range of service provision offered it was decided to change the title of the organisation to NECA.

To promote the prevention, recognition and treatment associated to use and misuse of substances including alcohol, drugs and gambling.
