Drug & Alcohol Treatment

APM was the first agency in Philadelphia to provide treatment for drug and alcohol rehabilitation designed specifically for the Latino population. Our Proyecto Nueva Vida (PNV) program provides intensive and regular outpatient services to adults. The Drug and Alcohol clinic offers family and couples therapy and can provide substance abuse treatment to individuals as young as 14 years old. APM staff is bilingual and culturally sensitive to meet the special needs of our population.

Participants also benefit from APM’s extensive health and social service programs, thereby reducing a number of stress factors that trigger substance abuse behaviors. The program is licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
