Recovery Group
Cost: Free
Location: YES Bellevue
Schedule: Mondays
Time: 6-7:30 p.m.

The goal of the Recovery Group is to assist youth in maintaining abstinence from alcohol and other drugs and to promote, support and facilitate recovery and healthy life choices. This is a process group rather than a structured educational group and therefore does not utilize a curriculum. Although all participants need to have completed a substance use assessment at YES, youth can begin the group at any time. Youth are encouraged to attend 12-Step meetings for additional support but it’s not a requirement for Recovery Group participation.

Contact: YES Intake or 425.747.4937 to participate or for more information. 

A phone intake will be completed and a drug assessment interview scheduled. Medical coupons, insurance and sliding scale private pay are options for payment of the assessment fee.
