About DAA

DAA is a fellowship of men and women who have recovered from drug addiction by following the Twelve Steps - a tried and tested programme of practical spiritual action. Our fellowship attracts drug addicts from many walks of life, who between them used many different drugs, both legal and illegal. Nonetheless, we share a common problem: all of us, when using, had little or no control over the amount we took. And even when we sincerely attempted to, we were unable to stop using drugs entirely. In DAA, we found a solution to our problem, and now find life without drugs enjoyable and rewarding.

We have designed this website to be as useful as possible. There is, however, no substitute for attending one of our meetings; this is the best way to find out what we do and how we can help you.

Details of DAA meetings in the UK can be found on the Meetings page.
