Young People in Recovery (YPR) was founded in 2010 by a group of young people, ages 18 to 30, who wanted to help others achieve and sustain recovery from addiction. YPR helps local communities create YPR chapters to provide education and support around recovery. They also develop life skills curriculum for individuals seeking or sustaining recovery and advocate for additional resources and programs for individuals in recovery, particularly youth and young adults.

Note: This resource was produced by an individual/organization receiving funding from sources that have a conflict of interest such as a pharmaceutical company, political action committee, or other industry-related sources. Multiple studies indicate that research performed by individuals with relationships to industry and research funded by industry sources are more likely to favor the sponsor’s products. Industry funding of charities and non-profit organizations has also been linked to groups supporting industry-favorable positions. For more information, please visit the CLOUD 101 page.
