The National Council on Substance Abuse (NCSA) was established as a Statutory Board in May 1995 under the aegis of the Ministry of Home Affairs. Our mandate is based on drug demand reduction in schools and the wider community. The Organisation is managed by a Board of Directors and a team of trained staff who coordinate and implement specific programmes and projects for various target audiences in Barbados.

Substance abuse is a major menace to public health; therefore we aim to be a beacon of hope, strength and empowerment as we encourage children, parents, youth, and older adults to maintain drug-free lifestyles.
