What we do
The 1st RCO in Texas to receive national accreditation from the Council on Accreditation of Peer Recovery Support Services
We serve persons who are in recovery or seeking recovery from substance use, many with co-occurring mental challenges. We are not a clinical service provider. APAA’s operational model is peer-driven and peer-led, meaning that all “coaches” who work with peers seeking recovery as well as all staff are themselves persons in long term recovery.
Peer Support Services
Peer specialists support recovery, the process of change where people with a mental health disorder or substance use disorder improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential
What is a RCO?
A recovery community organization (RCO) is an independent, non-profit
organization led and governed by representatives of local communities of recovery.
What is a ROSC?
A ROSC (Recovery Oriented Systems of Care) is a coordinated network of community-based services and supports that is person-centered and builds on the strengths and resiliencies of individuals, families, and communities to achieve abstinence and improved health, wellness, and quality of life for those with or at risk of alcohol and drug problems.
The Living Room
The Living Room is meant to bridge the gap between a mental health facility and a return to independence, while reducing the number of high utilizers of healthcare in the region.
Big Texas Rally for Recovery
The 2020 Virtual Big Texas Rally for Recovery will continue to educate Texans and promote substance use and mental health wellness and recovery.
