Congratulations to the first class of Young Adult Certified Peer Supporters!! You should all be so proud of the hard work you have put into the pioneering of this exciting new opportunity for young people in recovery in Ohio!
Our next Young Adult training is in the process of being scheduled, but is anticipated to be delivered in Summer, 2014.
