Too many young people are becoming addicted to drugs/alcohol. OYA is a community of parents and professionals sharing experiences, resources and hopes on the spectrum of addiction, treatment and recovery.
We welcome adults of influence including LADCs, social workers, teachers, nurses, law enforcement officers, coaches, parents and community members.
Different ages. Different learning styles and attention spans. Different life experiences. These are just a few of the reasons that young people in their tweens, teens and twenties are less likely to succeed in traditional treatment programs. Their brains are less developed than adults, so they respond to new and different protocols. This year’s conference will explore the ever-evolving ways to treat young people with substance-use disorders.
We have four important announcements to share:
Save the Date – The third-annual From Statistics to Solutions conference will take place on Thursday, May 10, 2018, at Hennepin Technical College in Brooklyn Park, Minn.
Call for Panelists & Keynote Speaker – This year, we are inviting you to apply as a panel participant or keynote speaker. Deadline for application is November 7. Details to come.
Sponsors & Exhibitors – Thanks to generous support from sponsors and exhibitors, we are able to offer value-packed conference for professionals and parents. Connect with 400 attendees at this year’s annual conference via a sponsorship or by being an exhibitor.
Thank you for being of the annual From Statistics to Solutions conference. Together, we are helping youth, families and the addiction treatment and recovery communities.
Experience. Resources. Hope.
Our Young Addicts is a community of parents and professionals who are concerned about the number of young people using drugs and alcohol. Together, we share experience, resources and hope – no matter where a young person may be on the spectrum of experimentation, use, abuse, treatment, relapse or recovery.
