Next ‘Youth in Recovery’ event will be Feb. 16 at Burien Library
Science and Management of Addictions (SAMA) will be holding its monthly ‘Youth In Recovery’ night on Sunday, Feb. 16 starting at 6 p.m. in the Multipurpose Room of the Burien Library.
SAMA focuses on eliminating the disease of substance addiction in youth (ages 13-25) by advancing research, education and treatment. Family Navigator Service is available for families and community outreach.

We’re celebrating the month of “LOVE” with Valentines’ Day around the corner. This is a very important month for our youth that perhaps don’t feel very loved because of their challenges with addiction and working on recovery. A very wise woman instilled in me that “our children are so easily loved when all is going well and they are behaving just as we’d like and expect them to; when that is not the case, at times it becomes very hard to bestow these emotions on them—yet, that is when they need our love and compassion the most”. THANK YOU MOM!
February 16, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Burien Library we’ll share our love with the youth/families supporting and celebrating their success of recovery. Please join us for a fun night of games, pizza, pop and music.
