OCAAR is creating a statewide advocacy network that increases support for young people in or seeking recovery, helps build the youth recovery voice at local and state level decision making, assist in expanding the continuum of care, and allowing for more young people to enter and sustain long-term recovery.  By building supportive networks for young people throughout the state, recovery can become visible, and we can begin creating career paths for the next generation through leadership and professional development.
