Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2006
This description of Sarah Trad's work was prepared when Sarah Trad was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2006.
Sarah Trad is confronting Lebanon’s growing drug addiction problem by drawing on creative, science-based methods that are common in the West, but have yet to be implemented in the Arab world. She believes that addicts are suffering from an illness that can be cured with proper treatment, and should not be shunned by society. Her holistic approach encompasses treatment, prevention, and advocacy for change.
