About Asian American Drug Abuse Program, Inc.

Location:

2900 CRENSHAW BLVD, LOS ANGELES, CA 90016, US

Mission Statement

The mission of the Asian American Drug Abuse Program, Inc. (AADAP) is to change lives and save families by providing comprehensive substance abuse and other social services for Asian Pacific Islander and other diverse communities. Core programs include education, prevention, intervention, treatment, employment, advocacy, and economic development.

Description

AADAP, Inc. grew out of a community in crisis in the late '60s and early '70s. Scores of Asian American youth across the city were dying of drug overdose. In response to this epidemic, volunteer youth groups built coalitions and agitated for services to address the problem. The goal of the founders of AADAP, Inc. was to provide a service network that youth could go to for help. As a result, a proposal to provide substance abuse services targeting Asian American youth was submitted to the Federal Government, and in 1972, Asian American Drug Abuse Program, Inc. (AADAP, Inc.) was born.

Unfortunately, many of the problems of the past persist today, and there is still much work to be done. AADAP continues to address these issues. The Asian Pacific Islander (API) American community continues to struggle with culture identity, language barriers, and a new way of life. Likewise, drug and alcohol abuse persists today. It affords many in the API community a way to deal with social pressures and problems.

In addition, the past four decades have brought an entirely new set of challenges. With the rise in HIV/AIDS, infant drug exposure, youth gangs, and drug addiction, the need for effective treatment proves to be even more necessary than ever. AADAP has expanded to respond to the emerging needs of Los Angeles' diverse communities. The agency has grown and developed comprehensive programs to specifically serve women, youth, and other populations. Although AADAP strives to meet the needs of the underserved Asian Pacific Islander (API) community, it is committed to providing services to everyone, without regard to race, ethnicity or religion.
