Introducing Our first annual COA Awareness Day
February 15th, 2020
 Provo Recreation Center multipurpose room
 
In coordination with National Children of Addiction Awareness Week (February 9 - 15th) we are hosting our first ever Awareness Day event. Growing up in a home with addiction issues is difficult. As the only COA specific organization in Utah we want to share with the community how we can all work together to decrease the adverse impact parental addiction has on children.
