NADA India’s Mission: Barrier-free Acupuncture Detox Treatment
To foster a network of community based initiatives, striving to develop empowered leadership and healthy choices amongst marginalized and vulnerable populations especially adolescents, women & senior citizens.
In 1999 NADA started working in India under the supervision and international leadership of Dr. Michael O. Smith with the objective of making barrier free addiction treatment and well-being issues available across communities. Today that vision has grown and under Suneel Vatsyayan, founder of the Nada India Foundation (NIF), the organization is working with a number of issues and among a variety of groups, ranging in age, gender, and class to promote health, child and adolescent rights, and drug-free lifestyle. NIF is involved in a number of programs that serve a range of members of society in innovative and effective ways such as through the use of interactive media in the hands of still hidden voices.
