Field Office Staff

DARE NETWORK Teams are set up in different ways in each community to implement activities. Each community is at a dissimilar stage of development according to when they were trained and when they began to implement their activities.

Each community’s environment is slightly different, with the biggest factors being the level of freedom of movement and availability of resources.

Camp Staff consists of Addiction Workers, Community-Based Addiction Workers and Community Volunteers.

Addiction Workers work directly with clients in treatment as well as prevention and education activities within the community. DARE has trained over 100 addiction workers since its inception in 2002.
