SAMA is here to help…
We are committed to empowering young people and their families with effective, research-based care and recovery management.
We lead the way in advancing addiction science, sharing what works and advocating for the support every family deserves.
Substance addiction is a treatable brain disease. It is both a public health issue and a personal struggle for many families-made even more devastating by the stigma and lack of resources they face.
SAMA provides free telephone support to parents and other concerned family members as they navigate the treatment system.
SAMA offers experienced counselors, research informed methods, and a respectful process for youth ages 13-25.
Our research informed skills-based parent groups provide support and direction about how to stay engaged positively with your loved one.
“If we’re honest, there is not a person among us whose life has not been disrupted—either directly, or indirectly—by addiction. We invite you to join us to build SAMA into a leading national voice and to restore hope for families like ours who want nothing more than to heal and comfort a sick child.”
