Assessment for Addiction Treatment

Dianova Sweden contributes to the promotion of the values and principles of the Dianova international network. We believe that networking is one of the best strategies to achieve significant results in our fields of activity. Addiction, Youth and Gender Equality are cross-country issues in which the Dianova network has an accumulated experience of more than 40 years around the globe.

Dianova Sweden's contribution is not only focused on Swedish territory, but also in other countries of Northern Europe where there is no representation of our network. We like to think that the Swedish contribution will help people from all over the world. Therefore, we foster the close relationship between Dianova Network NGOs, but also with those individuals or organisations that share our ideals and principles.
