NNED Partner of the Month
Posted: August 01, 2018
In order to highlight pockets of excellence across the country, the NNED selects an organization to highlight once a month. Young People in Recovery (YPR) has been selected as the Partner of the Month for August.
YPR envisions a world where everyone can access the necessary resources to recover from substance use disorder. YPR’s mission is to provide the training and networks all individuals, families, and communities need to recover and maximize their full potential.
YPR serves the greater community through partnerships and collaborations with treatment centers, educational institutions, state and local agencies, nonprofit and for-profit organizations. Some of the programs YPR offers include:
YPR utilizes an advocacy-in-action model to create recovery-ready communities at local, state and national levels. Advocacy-in-action means providing direct service and building community amongst those in recovery and their allies through facilitating workshops, all-recovery meetings, leadership development, community forums and more. Learn more about YPR's advocacy.
YPR chapters engage young people in or seeking recovery and their allies in communities across the country to take a stand for recovery. Chapters support young people in or seeking recovery by empowering them to obtain stable employment, secure suitable housing, and continue and complete their educations. Chapters also advocate on the local and state levels for better accessibility of these services and other effective recovery resources.
Learn more about YPR and how they are advancing recovery efforts, health, and well being for young people across the country.
