Helping Our Community

The Pickaway Addiction Action Coalition’s mission is to prevent adult and youth drug abuse, addiction, overdose, and death.



Pickaway Addiction Action Coalition (PAAC) was established in late 2015 and was registered with the Ohio Secretary of State as a 501c3 nonprofit organization in 2016.

As a Drug Free Community Grant recipient in September 2021, PAAC has been busy raising awareness of substance misuse in our communities.
