Peer Assistance Services, Inc. is a Colorado 501(c)(3) non-profit agency dedicated to quality, accessible prevention and intervention services in workplaces and communities, focused on substance use and related issues. At the core of PAS are the values of integrity, respect, compassion, perseverance and vision. We incorporate these values into all that we do in the service of our mission.
PAS was founded in 1984 with $300 in start-up funds from the Colorado Nurses Association to serve nurses with substance abuse issues. Services have been expanded to include intervention with a wider range of licensed professionals including dentists, pharmacists, mental health practitioners, veterinarians and other at-risk working adults. PAS has also expanded services to include substance abuse prevention programming with strategies aimed at at-risk populations. SBIRT in Colorado focuses on training and technical assistance for health care providers and public awareness of substance use as a health issue.
