Company Description

AGENCY HISTORY: POINT DEFIANCE AIDS PROJECTS (PDAP) WAS INCORPORATED AS A 501C (3) NONPROFIT AGENCY ON DECEMBER 5, 1988. PDAP'S FOUNDER, DAVE PURCHASE, WITNESSED MANY OF THE PEOPLE FOR WHOM HE PROVIDED CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY COUNSELING DIE OF A DISEASE THAT WOULD LATER COME TO BE KNOWN AS AIDS. THIS EXPERIENCE SHIFTED HIS FOCUS FROM CHEMICAL DEPENDENCY TREATMENT TO PREVENTING THE SPREAD OF HIV. DAVE PUT IT THIS WAY, "DEAD PEOPLE CAN'T TWO-STEP LET ALONE 12-STEP." HE KNEW OF INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS THAT PROVIDED DRUG USERS WITH CLEAN SYRINGES IN AN EFFORT TO REDUCE NEEDLE SHARING. THEIR SUCCESS IN STEMMING THE SPREAD OF DISEASE COMPELLED DAVE AND OTHERS TO FOUND THE TACOMA NEEDLE EXCHANGE PROGRAM (TNEP). TNEP IS THE FIRST LEGALLY SANCTIONED SYRINGE SERVICE PROGRAM (SSP) IN THE U.S. AND HAS OPERATED CONTINUOUSLY SINCE 1988. AS INTEREST IN THE PUBLIC HEALTH APPLICATION OF SYRINGE EXCHANGE SPREAD, TNEP AND OTHER EMERGING SSPS WERE OVERWHELMED WITH TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE AND INFORMATION REQUESTS.
