National Native Alcohol and Drug Abuse Program

The National Native Alcohol and Drug Abuse Program (NNADAP) is an example of a Health Canada program now largely controlled by First Nations communities and organizations. Since its origins in the 1970s, the program's goal has been to help First Nations and Inuit communities set up and operate programs aimed at reducing high levels of alcohol, drug, and solvent abuse among on-reserve populations.

NNADAP supports a national network of 52 residential treatment centres, with some 700 treatment beds. You can get basic information on these treatment centres, as well as those funded by the National Youth Solvent Abuse Program (NYSAP), through the directory of treatment centres, compiled and updated as part of these programs.

Reflecting the spirit of the General Review of NNADAP in 1998, and confirmed through the consultations at the Conferences hosted by the Partnership, the following Statement captures the essence of a guiding vision for the end results we are seeking Assisted by an integrated national, regional, district and local network of both highly effective and culturally sensitive substance abuse and addictions prevention and intervention programs and highly trained, caring and effective service providers, First Nations and Inuit people will gradually liberate themselves, their families and communities from the burden of past and present substance abuse and addictive behaviours.

The mission of the National Native Addictions Partnership Foundation is captured in the following Statement:

Building on the national Review of NNADAP in 1998, and other Regional and individual studies, our challenge is to advocate, develop, facilitate, and monitor strategies designed to continuously upgrade and enhance the quality of ideas, information, program methodologies, financial allocations and skills of service providers comprising the program.

Or, in its short form: The National Native Addictions Partnership Foundation is committed to promoting a capacity building strategy to renew NNADAP.
