Although research shows that more than 70% of youth and young adults with addiction disorders have a co-occurring mental health disorder, Massachusetts offers limited services for youth and young adults with co-occurring disorders.  PPAL and MOAR (Massachusetts Organization for Addiction Recovery) held 11 listening sessions across Massachusetts to hear from youth and their families what issues they face in seeking services for co-occurring disorders.  Overwhelmingly, youth and young adults and their families reported a lack of available resources and services designed for youth and expressed the need for additional training for service providers, school personnel, families and youth themselves.
