We welcome you to the Archdiocese of New York Drug Abuse Prevention Program (ADAPP) website. Throughout our 40-year history, ADAPP has been committed to developing resilient, productive youth, ready to face each and every challenge the future will present.
While every generation has faced its dilemmas, the issues children encounter today are especially challenging. Potential substance abuse – be it drugs, alcohol, tobacco or even prescription and over-the-counter medications – bullying, school violence, online safety, stress and anxiety are just a few of the roadblocks that can interfere with their educational journey.
ADAPP is committed to helping our schools create a safe, supportive environment where children can learn and grow into healthy adults.
To that end, we intend to provide resources and information to children, parents, teachers and community members to tackle, head-on, the issues we face.
We thank you in advance for joining ADAPP’s efforts to assure the best possible future for our children.
