Meet a New Version of Yourself. YouthRecoveryCT Can Help.

For Connecticut teens and young adults struggling with addiction or substance use issues, YouthRecoveryCT offers recovery assistance, peer support, and hope—even if your situation seems hopeless, and even if you have already tried treatment and support groups with no success.

Meet people who know what it’s like to walk in your shoes, and let them show you a better path.
