YADD believes in evidence based interventions as such it has partnered with relevant treatment and prevention institutions which provide well trained voluntary and professional services and care. There is also the prioritization of healthy alternatives which have a preventative as well as curative effect which include but not limited to performance arts, sports, advocacy just to mention a few. In our concern for the mental effects of other drugs and alcohol we also consider affected parties such as close partners, relatives, friends, colleagues who are third party casualties to the behavioral tendencies of the alcohol and drug user. YADD also takes cognizance of the gender, cultural, religious, social, political and economical diversities which dictate methods of treatment and rehabilitation.
YADD facilitates for treatment of alcohol and other drugs addictions and related causal diseases. Through its partnership with other organisations, rehabilitation and treatment are conducted by trained volunteers and professionals.
