Start a Chapter

What are YPR chapters?

YPR is a national recovery support service organization made up of chapters focused on peer-to-peer services for young people in, or seeking recovery. YPR chapters engage in advocacy at the local, state and federal levels to improve access to resources such as treatment, education, employment and housing. We do this by creating a national network of young people in recovery, their families and friends. YPR empowers young people to get involved in their communities by providing them with the tools and support that will allow them to take charge of their futures.
