The Palmer Drug Abuse Program (PDAP) is an alternative peer group for adolescents, emerging adults and their families in the Greater Houston area who seek to prevent or overcome the harmful effects of drug and alcohol abuse. Getting involved with PDAP begins by attending a meeting to see what we are all about!
PDAP Twelve-Step Support Group Meetings
PDAP provides adolescents, young adults, and families with the resources and support needed to overcome the nightmare of substance abuse.
Participants join one of three groups
YOUNGER GROUP ages 12 through High School
Learn the 12-steps: Build the foundation for living a sober lifestyle.
Get a Sponsor, Be a Sponsor: Not only receive support from others but give back to your peers and help them learn from your experiences.
OLDER GROUP ages 18-25
You Won’t Get Preached To: The activities & support programs are appropriate for people 18+ years old.
Not Just Talk: Peers and staff are there to help, support, offer suggestions, and give feedback. They are not there to judge.
Safe and Secure Environment: Meet with other parents who are also facing the everyday challenges of addiction in their family.
No Judgment, No Secrets: Feel comfortable sharing your issues. Every parent is there to help each other, not judge each other.
