Parents of a YES client described their son's experiences with substance abuse the audience and addressed the YES staff: All of you have helped transform our family. You stood beside us and lifted us up on some very dark days. There was never judgment; instead gentle guidance from you - helping us - navigate our own self-discovery. You gave us the vision to see ourselves healthy and whole again and access to the resources to make it happen.
