Why DAA?

DAA was started in the UK by a group of drug addicts who recovered from their seemingly hopeless condition by faithfully following the Twelve Step programme pioneered in the early years of Alcoholics Anonymous.

AA’s First Tradition stresses the importance of unity in fellowship, and its Fifth the need to carry the message of recovery to others who still suffer. Mindful of the importance of the Traditions to our group’s survival, and thus to our own continued recovery, we knew we had to create for ourselves the fellowship we craved:

When we discovered that ten years earlier like-minded groups in Sweden had established a fellowship of this kind, DAA UK was born.
