Tara MoselyYoung People in Recovery (YPR) Louisville, KY
My name is Tara Moseley and I am a person in long-term recovery. What that means to me is that I have not used alcohol or any other substances since April of 2011. This has allowed me to become a daughter, friend, college student, and most importantly a productive member of my community.
I have watched many of my peers struggle to maintain their recovery because of living circumstances, employment, and lack of support; myself included.
I have established a Young People in Recovery chapter in my community in Louisville, Kentucky, in which I am the Chapter Lead. I am currently attending college to receive a Bachelor in Political Science. My goals are to advocate for the recovery community to have access to treatment, education, and housing by bringing awareness to the lack of support surrounding substance use disorders.
Young People in Recovery (YPR) has successfully implemented seminars open to the community that serves as a resource to help individuals build their skills in those areas.
