FADAP WELLNESS APP!
Interactive features relating to:

The Flight Attendant Wellness App is a collaborative effort of teams from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention supported by the Preventing Prescription Abuse in the Workplace (PAW), the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) and the Flight Attendant Drug and Alcohol Program (FADAP). The app application platform as well as the non-flight attendant specific content is scientifically-based and largely derived from the Personal Health Intervention Toolkit. The toolkit was originally developed for the Department of Defense for soldiers returning from active duty deployment. The flight attendant specific information is derived from studies and collaborative efforts between CSAP and Flight Attendant populations including a flight attendant occupation specific substance abuse screener which includes prescription drug misuse.
Available for iPhone and Android. Visit the iTunes or Google Play Store and search for "Flight Attendant Wellness" from FADAP.
