Young People and Family Services

Supporting Young People and Families affected by substance use.

CCAR’s Young People and Family (YPF) Services are rooted in our Recovery Community Centers (RCC). We provide support for Young People and Families affected by substance use by offering peer-led, recovery support meetings either in-person, at our RCC’s or virtually on Zoom. YPF Services participants have a chance to engage in advocacy efforts locally and statewide and participate in developing support networks within the established RCC’s through personal meetings, presentations, and other promotional/networking activities. Please reach out by phone or email or come visit us! We’d love to offer you support in your Recovery Journey. Contact YPF directly by emailing the YPF Services Manager or by reaching out to the Recovery Community Center closest to you.

Black History Month is to honor the contributions, accomplishments, and struggles of Black individuals throughout history. There have been numerous Black recovery leaders throughout history who have made great strides in their communities, which have contributed to where the recovery movement is today. We thank and celebrate that Black influence that has and will continue to support and improve addiction recovery awareness and services. To learn more about just a few of these individuals, check out this article: #blackhistorymonth
