Writers, experts honored in NCADD celebration.

The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc. (NCADD) included in its 60th anniversary celebration in September a presentation of awards to writers and historians who have left an "indelible mark" on the field. Honorees included Nancy Olson, author of With a Little Help from My Friends; Sally and David Brown, authors of Mrs. Marty Mann: The First Lady of Alcoholics Anonymous; William L. White, author of Slaying the Dragon: The History of Addiction Treatment and Recovery in America; and Susan Cheever, author of My Name is Bill. The award to White, a frequent contributing writer to Addiction Professional, credits his "compelling documentation of the alcoholism movement in the United States," according to NCADD.

The organization also presented a Gold Key Award to Adele Smithers-Fornaci, president of The Christopher D. Smithers Foundation, for outstanding national contributions to the alcoholism field. "Mrs. Smithers-Fornaci is known for her outspoken voice on behalf of America's youth population, and she has been extremely interested in alcoholism programs for women and the elderly," an NCADD statement read.
