YPR has helped me take my recovery to the next level by helping others with All Recovery Meetings and through learning how to advocate for those in or seeking recovery.I was lucky enough to find YPR while looking for something else to help me in my recovery journey. I became directly involved as soon as I could and launched the Cañon City CO chapter. After becoming the lead I was offered a national staff position with the organization to help run other chapters across the nation. Additionally, I assist with finding and securing grants to support existing or up-coming chapters. YPR has helped me take my recovery to the next level by helping others with All Recovery Meetings and through learning how to advocate for those in or seeking recovery. I have been a part of the YPR team for a year and a half and have progressed from a local recovery leader to working with others at a national level. I am grateful to YPR for helping me sustain my recovery and for teaching me that it’s ok to be a person in recovery.
