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.
