Our Young Addicts (OYA) is a community of parents and professionals who share experiences, resources, and hopes – no matter where a young adult may be on the spectrum of addiction, treatment or recovery. Rose McKinney, aka Midwestern Mama, created Our Young Addicts when her 20-something son’s addiction was spiraling out of control; today he is in recovery and thriving in his sobriety. To learn more, follow #OYACommunity on Twitter and Facebook and follow the blog. Below is a link to Rose’s blog about her son’s journey to recovery with medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
