Palmer Drug Abuse Program

Palmer Drug Abuse Program is a FREE 12 step program that has been in existence since 1988 in the Hidalgo County and provides help for youth, adults and their families. PDAP reaches out to the potential drug user & their family.

Young people today are faced with an increasing amount of opportunities to abuse alcohol and/or drugs but with fewer opportunities for drug-free social interactions. PDAP provides a positive, safe place where teenagers can feel they belong, share their struggles, learn 12 step recovery, &talk to licensed substance abuse counselors. Teenagers & young adults are encouraged to come to PDAP when they are not in school or work. While at PDAP, they can shoot pool, play cards, video games, basketball or simply hang out. Most importantly, they can socialize in a non-threatening, sober environment.

I have been devastated with drug addiction for the past 12 years of my life. After being consecutively broken throughout the years, I found myself utterly hopeless. It was at this time that I desperately reached out for one last attempt, and I found PDAP. Through working their program and attending their meetings, I have found hope for the first time in my life. I now have been 7 months sober and a renewed sense for life. Thank you PDAP, I am eternally grateful.
