Recovery begins with the first step....
PAACA is often seen as the MASH unit in the war on drugs because we are the entry point or triage center for people entering the continuum of care. With a 30-year history of one addict helping another, we are able to provide services that conventional treatment agencies are unable to because of the support of our many volunteers.
