What We Do

Our mission is to empower all communities against addiction and crime

DAAP works with individuals and communities to provide appropriate information and interventions to overcome drug, alcohol and Khat addiction and to tackle crime and the causes that lead to crime.

Our principles

Healthy Individuals create healthy communities and crime free individuals contribute to creating safer communities

Addiction, crime and its consequences affect every section of our community either directly or indirectly.

DAAP challenges static community perceptions about addiction and established practices and static approaches to tackling crime.

Education promotes informed choice

Individuals can make informed choices to promote their physical, emotional and spiritual well- being by knowing the consequences of addiction and of leading a life of crime.

DAAP educates individuals, organisations and communities on drug, alcohol and Khat addiction and crime prevention and how these impact on the individual, the family, the community and society at large.

Responsiveness and inclusiveness ensures diverse solutions and outcomes

Individuals and communities are diverse. Solutions and interventions therefore need to be wide ranging and appropriate.

DAAP promotes appropriate interventions and equality of choice so that individuals and communities can better address addiction, crime and related issues.

We provide support for users and carers in a number of local languages, support for individuals wishing to lead crime free lives, organise crime diversion and community safety and cohesion events, train volunteers and undertake research and resource development.
