Drug Addiction Resource Alliance D.A.R.A. is a collective of local resources in our community that are available to assist those who suspect someone they love may be struggling with substance use disorder and provide education and support to their families.
D.A.R.A. was formed when District Judge Andrea Duffy identified a need in our community for more intervention. Even if addiction has not impacted your life YET, please attend our forum to understand what is drastically affecting our community. We welcome parents, teachers and civic leaders!
D.A.R.A. started as an alternative to jail for those brought before Judge Andrea Duffy ... and has evolved as a resource for any one dealing with addiction ... before ... during ... or after the affects of this devastating attack on American families and communities.
D.A.R.A. forums are scheduled 3 or 4 times a year at local public facilities. The forum provides resources and assistance for anyone in the community who wants either to learn about dealing with addiction for themselves, or family or friends or wants to volunteer to help with answers to this epidemic;
Our next Forum is November 19th, 2019. Please visit Our Events Page for details and other upcoming D.A.R.A. events.
Each forum has guest speakers from local, county or state authorities as well as presentations from families devastated by addiction and those sharing a message of HOPE.
Beside presenters, attendees can visit tables from one D.A.R.A.'s various resources alliance partners. At most events, *FREE NARCAN is offered as well as training in its administration.
