Welcome to the website of the NADP

The National Association of Drugless Practitioners, NADP, is the oldest association for Drugless Practitioners in the world, and represents practitioners and educational institutions of the drugless healing arts. As you will note from our logo, we were founded and gained our federal charter in 1912 - over 100 years ago.
