PPI Project Apple Home

Our Story

The PPI Project APPLE program was established through StarCare Specialty Health System, formerly Lubbock Regional MHMR in September 2008. Project APPLE provides community-based, gender specific outreach and intervention services for pregnant and postpartum adult and adolescent women at risk for, or with substance use/abuse problems. 

The mission of Project APPLE is to assist in creating a healthy lifestyle for all participants. The program coordinates services with other agencies to promote the health and well-being of the individual and family.
