Maureen McCormick is widely known for her portrayal of Marcia Brady on TV's The Brady Bunch.

The Council on Alcoholism & Drug Abuse of NWLA (CADA) will present it’s 60th Anniversary Annual Dinner with special guest speaker Maureen McCormick on October 10 at the Shreveport Convention Center. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $50 each and table sponsorships are available for $500.

Maureen McCormick is widely known for her portrayal of Marcia Brady on TV’s The Brady Bunch, but not everyone knows she has achieved 36 years of sobriety. McCormick is also a New York Times bestselling author with her book Here’s the Story, and she was a popular contestant on Dancing with the Stars.

“We are grateful to be able to host Maureen McCormick at our 60th Anniversary event thanks to the support of our generous supporters and sponsors such as Willis-Knighton Health System, TeamLogicIT and AEP SWEPCO,” said CADA’s executive director Bill Rose. “Maureen knows firsthand what it’s like to battle addiction and she arrived on the other side of recovery with grace. She has a wonderful story to tell of her struggle and success.”

CADA also has a story to tell based on its 60 years of providing prevention, education and treatment in North Louisiana. CADA and its supporters have helped thousands of people struggling with substance use disorders find their paths to recovery and re-join their families. Fourteen programs in four facilities continue to help men, women (including women with dependent children and pregnant women), adolescents 12 – 17 years of age, and veterans. Additionally, CADA’s School of Addiction and Behavioral Health provides evidence-based education and outreach to professionals and those on a career path to working with people with substance use disorders.

Guests at CADA’s 60th Anniversary Annual Dinner will travel through time beginning in 1958, the year CADA was founded, and are encouraged to dress in fashion from their favorite decade. Fun interactive pop culture activities will be taking place before and after the event. Doors open at 5:30.
