The Association of Persons Affected by Addiction (APAA), Dallas, TX


The Association of Persons Affected by Addiction (APAA) is a nationally renowned, award-winning, grass-roots, peer-driven and peer-led recovery community organization in Dallas, Texas. (Note: “Peers” is the term we use to refer to our peers, those we serve, who are in recovery from substance use.) In 1998, a local non-profit recovery advocacy organization called Dallas Helps, in association with a dedicated group of peers in recovery from alcohol and/or other drug addiction, formed the association now known as APAA. Over the next three years, this newfound organization grew from infancy and quickly established its mission, vision and values.
