Prevention Education

Virtual classes that cover various topics ranging from long-term effects of substance use to how to be involved in your community.

Support Groups

Facilitated by a peer counselor, participants meet in a group format to share their experiences, which strengthens the relationships within the group and provides and environment that encourages vulnerability and honesty.

Social Activity

We show that it is possible to have fun without getting high. Participation is important as the activities afford you or your loved one the opportunity to relax and laugh, which is crucial to healing individually and as a family.

Isolation, Anxiety, and Stress Can be Triggers

In this current environment, our most vulnerable are at a higher risk of relapse or to turn to substance as a means of escape. We are living in a perfect storm for those who don’t seek help when they need it.

About Us

Established in San Antonio in 1977 as the Palmer Drug Abuse Program (PDAP), our nonprofit organization was founded as a faith-based resource to San Antonio families, offering solutions to eliminate the devastating impacts and stigma of substance use. By 2014, PDAP only described a portion of our reach and Rise Recovery was founded to support the PDAP direct service program along with our growing resources to the community.


In 2021, we began to virtually expand our services to several counties in Texas for youth and their families. Our new Telehealth program reaches community members exactly where they are, no matter the distance from San Antonio.
