Too many young people are becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol. OYA is a growing community of parents and professionals who share experiences, resources and hopes – no matter where a young adult may be on the spectrum of experimentation, recreation, use, abuse, addiction, treatment, relapse, or recovery. Join us online via Twitter and Facebook, and follow our blog.
Midwestern Mama created the OYA Community when her 20-something son’s addiction was spiraling out of control; since then, he has experienced sobriety, relapse and recovery and continues to work through these.
The epitome of OYA is having parents and professionals work together in our local communities. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6S215zhIFGY
We are the proud co-hosts with Know The Truth of the annual conference “From Statistics to Solutions – Addressing the Underlying Issues of Youth Substance Use.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rflvHr4C-Ak
Together, we are the #OYACommunity.
