A Leven-based charity is celebrating after receiving a prestigious accolade in its 20th anniversary year.
Drug and Alcohol Project Limited (DAPL) recently held an event in Kirkcaldy to mark two decades in Fife.
The organisation began in Levenmouth in 1994 after a spate of drug deaths, and now operates throughout the whole of the Kingdom, with offices in both Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes, and successful partnerships with several Fife schools and other charitable organisations.
As part of the celebrations, DAPL has been awarded service re-accreditation by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This award is a major recognition for the charity with only three other agencies in Scotland having achieved this honour.
Rick Hughes, BACP representative, commented: “It is testament to the hard work of the service managers, staff and volunteers that BACP was able to re-accredit DAPL under the Service Accreditation Scheme.
“The award recognises the centre of excellence that DAPL has become and reflects the crucial role they deliver providing professional therapeutic support for those affected by substance misuse in the local community and beyond.”
