​About DDAP 

As of July 2012, the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs (DDAP), formerly under the Department of Health, became a department.  This change reflects a strong commitment by the Commonwealth to provide education, intervention and treatment programs to reduce the drug and alcohol abuse and dependency for all Pennsylvanians. Dr. Latika Davis-Jones is the current Secretary of the department.
