The NADAP is one of the programs primarily managed directly by First Nations through contribution and/or transfer agreements with the First Nation Inuit & Health (FNIH), Health Canada.


Program supports the community to reduce the high levels of alcohol and other substance abuse within our population, building the capacity within the community to develop and deliver community based addictions services.


Most of the NADAP activities are included in the following four areas of emphasis:

  • Prevention and Intervention
  • Treatment
  • Training
  • Research and Development


This program has been in existance for over 25 + years in our community. N.A.D.A.P. is not affiliated with Alcoholics Annonymous, N.A.D.A.P. and Alcoholics Annonymous are not the same.

Life's Lessons
After a while you learn the difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul. You learn that love isn't leaning but lending support. You begin to accept your defeats with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child. You decide to build your roads on today, for tommorrow's ground is too uncertain.You help someone plant a garden instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. You learn that God has given you the strength to endure and that you really do have worth.
