President Obama, speaking in Atlanta at a summit on drug misuse and substance use disorder, said Tuesday that the nation's surging opioid epidemic, "Is costing lives and devastating communities." The President was joined by our very own Justin Luke Riley, President and CEO of Young People in Recovery for an in-depth conversation about the national epidemic and potential solutions our government must consider when implementing strategic initiatives.
Young People in Recovery, the Association of Recovery Schools, Rise Together, R5 and Citywide Movement, are all committed to continuing to build support in key recovery support areas: housing, education, and employment. We are thrilled that the event received national coverage from the following news outlets:
We look forward to continuing to leverage this momentum to make real, lasting change for young people in recovery, their families and the communities they thrive in!
