|Bienvenu - Benvenuti - Welcome|
Welcome to the website of the VEVDAJ, the Swiss umbrella organisation that groups local and regional associations of parents and other relatives of drug users.
VEVDAJ is a politically neutral and non-denominational organisation that supports the local self-help groups. VEVDAJ stands up for the needs and the interests of drug-addicted people and their families.
We are members of FRAPCD, the Swiss-French umbrella organisation, of NAS, the National Community on Drug Policies and of Correlation Network, the European Project that promotes health inclusion of marginalized people.
We endorse the governmental four-pillar policy implemented throughout our country (prevention, therapy, harm reduction and survival aid, law enforcement and control) and we plea for acceptance-oriented drug policies.
We oppose the criminalization of drug users. Repression is not the right way to fight drug use or addiction.
