Association of Persons Affected by Addiction
Organized by people from the Dallas, TX, recovery community, the Association of Persons Affected by Addiction (APAA) is leading a Recovery Community Support Organization that encourages and supports personal recovery by offering peer-to-peer assistance that helps to support recovery, reduce relapse, and promote high-level wellness in individuals, their families and the community.
APAA works to educate all segments of the community about the nature of addiction and recovery and to provide recovery support services to the individual, the family and to the recovery community. It partners with a variety of local organizations to provide recovery coaching, recovery support groups, telephone support, health and wellness classes, and social activities for the greater Dallas area. The community support project is designed as a continuation of services to help individuals in recovery maintain gain made after formal or traditional services are completed. This project focuses on delivering peer-driven recovery support services that are proven and documented to reduce relapse and sustain recovery.
