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.

Family Navigator Line

SAMA  provides free telephone support to parents and other concerned family members as they navigate the treatment system.

Youth Treatment Services

SAMA offers experienced counselors, research informed methods, and a respectful process for youth ages 13-25.

Family Services

Our research informed skills-based parent groups provide support and direction about how to stay engaged positively with your loved one.  Please join SAMA and the Seattle foundation in celebrating another year of giving. Every dollar you donate on May 6th through the Give Big campaign can stretch a little further.  You can play a major role in the lives of a young person struggling with addiction.

“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.”
