FADAP's mission is to support a culture of safety which will be able to assist flight attendants in meeting their personal and professional goals through substance-abuse awareness, combined with self and peer referrals for assistance, and the implementation of a flight-attendant-specific recovery support system.

The advancement of the Flight Attendant Drug and Alcohol Program has been endorsed by your flight attendant peers and managers from 25 carriers during a March 2009 "Return to the Cabin" Summit.

The Flight Attendant Drug and Alcohol Program began September 2010 with funding from the FAA.

The following statement of values under which FADAP operates was created by the FADAP Advisory Board (January 2011).

Value Statement

  • Substance Use Disorders are preventable and treatable chronic illnesses
  • Left unaddressed, we all pay the price in numerous ways
  • FADAP is dedicated to preventing and reclaiming personal and economic loss
