Mediation is where someone independent helps two or more people to talk about their problems and issues so that they can achieve solutions and agreements. DAAP believes that mediation helps families to face addiction and related issues more objectively.
Support Through Talk Therapy
Many people need to talk to someone to decide what to do about addiction and related issues. DAAP offers talk therapy in English, Punjabi, Urdu and Somali for users, carers and other family members. Group support is also available.
Drug, Alcohol and Khat Education
Knowledge about drugs, alcohol and Khat addiction helps individuals to assess how this affects them and their communities. DAAP offers outreach education sessions in English, Punjabi, Urdu and Somali.
Training and Building Knowledge
DAAP trains volunteers to become community educators so that they can deliver education sessions in different languages. We also build the capacity of organisations to deal with addiction issues and help services to address different cultural needs.
Challenging prejudices and discrimination between communities help to build safer and stronger communities, which can address issues of crime and safety. DAAP works to promote equality, community cohesion and safety between all communities. Empowering communities.
DAAP believes that different communities have different needs. We therefore work in a targeted way with young people, women, diverse cultural communities, the voluntary and other sector organisations.
Being able to relax allows individual to be more in control of their lives. DAAP will continue to offer Yoga, meditation and Reiki for user and carers.
