Chicago, IL – PCC Community Wellness Center (PCC) has received certification from the Illinois Department of Human Services' Division of Alcoholism & Substance Abuse (IDHS/DASA). IDHS/DASA administers a network of community based facilities that provide alcohol and other drug treatment programs. 

“The acquisition of a DASA licensure within PCC’s integrated services supports PCC’s mission to provide the highest quality of care. Through the recognition of this DASA licensure, PCC continues to provide evidence based interventions for substance use disorders, while supporting the integration of treatment into primary care, leading to decreased stigma associated with seeking treatment,” said Amanda Brooks, PCC’s Chief Population Health Officer.
