While volunteer opportunities with De Paul can be limited at times, their work is top notch. As a community volunteer and friend of parents with a teenager with addiction issues, I know that they were very satisfied with the treatment and care their child received. They have a wonderful family program. Regardless of the client's age, including family or caring friends in the recovery process has proven to produce good results for clients and their families. Volunteers are always needed to serve on committees to organize events, help raise funds, work on projects, etc. They are respected by their peers and the community alike.
