Digital Peer Support Services for Youth & Young Adults

Young People in Recovery provides support services to youth and young adults. Both groups are more likely than others to die from drug overdoses, which have increased in 35 states since the start of the pandemic. Through its 54 national chapters, the organization will seek to ensure continued access to recovery services by expanding its digital offerings, including virtual all-recovery meetings, virtual social events, and virtual life-skills trainings. The meetings aim to build a sense of community among those pursuing different recovery pathways and help those in recovery achieve their long-term goals, such as graduating from college or finding housing.
