Our Youth Clubhouses help young people in recovery (or at risk for addiction) develop social skills that promote prevention, long-term health, wellness, recovery, and a drug-free lifestyle.

15% of young adults suffer from substance use disorder (SUD) compared to 6.6% of adults over the age of 26.

About the Clubhouses

A little bit about what we do

A peer support approach to wellbeing

The clubhouses support and guide youth toward self-actualization, self-sufficiency, and sustained drug and alcohol free lifestyle.

Community connections are designed to educate youth, families, and professionals to build sustaining positive support systems. We foster opportunities within the community for youth to overcome the current culture of addiction.

Participants of the clubhouse participate in activities that build learning and capabilities; they conduct a live radio broadcast, develop art projects, participate in events, even develop movies.

I go to clubhouse because I feel like it's such an escape from the outside world and you can be there and be comfortable with people who respect you and your boundaries.

Combating the Opioid Epidemic

Providing Naloxone training to the community

We have hired and trained some of the teenagers to be certified youth peer leaders. The new peer leaders learned about opioid use disorder and how to administer life-saving medication like Narcan (Naloxone).

The teens have engaged with the community, providing this training at various locations all over the counties.

The need for youth based services

Together we walk on the path to recovery

136 people die every day from an opioid overdose.1 An estimated 3.7% of youth and 15% of young adults suffer from a substance use disorder (SUD). Of these in need of treatment, only 0.6% and 1.6%, respectively, received services.2

It's our mission to change that.

We provide a supportive, peer based center, support, and Naloxone training to help protect against opioid overdoses.

A Cinematic Experience

Making a documentary
