What We Do
Since it was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 2001, the Danya Institute has provided training and technical assistance (T/TA) to more than 10,000 community outreach workers, and addictions and mental health providers nationwide. This equates to improved quality care for an estimated 100,000 persons in recovery from the chronic diseases of addiction and mental illness.
The Danya Institute’s mission is to provide training, leadership development and technical assistance to health and human services providers and consumers to enhance prevention, health promotion, and treatment services through the use of evidence-based practice.
The Danya Institute seeks to be a leader in the promotion of health, education and well-being of individuals and communities across all populations.

**Intensive Technical Assistance
Using a systems change approach, the goal of intensive TA is to improve organizations and systems of care, enhancing access, engagement, and outcomes based in a continuous quality improvement framework. We will work with organizations to develop or improve the quality of services and interventions that are provided across the prevention, treatment, and maintenance (recovery) contiuum for mental and behavioral health.
