APDS is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit counseling institution founded in 1988 by Drs. Moriba and Barbara Kelsey in Columbus, Ohio. It is dually certified by the Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services (ODADAS) to operate both Non-Intensive/Intensive Outpatient Treatment and Prevention programs.

We are primarily funded by citizens of Franklin County through the ADAMH Board of Franklin County. A subsidy scale is applied to most of our programs. Our annual budget is just over 1 million with a workforce of 13 full time and 10 seasonal employees plus 3 independent contractors. Services are offered to all populations and no one is denied services due to race, ethnicity, age, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or economic status.
