Young People in Recovery

Young People in Recovery is a recovery support services organization focused on creating recovery-ready communities throughout the nation for young people in, or seeking, recovery. Young People in Recovery has partnered with DHCS to launch new chapters and life-skills curriculum programs to individuals in recovery from opioid use and substance use disorders.

To date, Young People in Recovery has served 37,000 Californians across its programs and chapters in the state and has held over 3,700 events.

This project receives funding from the State Opioid Response (SOR) grant through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
