Chapter Life

Hello! I am Marty Herrmann, Chapter Lead & Program Coordinator for the Young People in Recovery Orange County Chapter. I currently have bi-weekly ARMs (on the national calendar), two Phoenix programs in which I facilitate life-skill training and resume development with state parolees in recovery, assist with facilitation of EPIC life-skills at an IOP in Huntington Beach called Blue Coast Behavioral, run a monthly workshop and pro-social at Tustin Temporary Emergency Shelter, a monthly open workshop (see national calendar) at Genesis New Beginning in Huntington Beach and a monthly laundry outreach in which we pay for laundry and provide Narcan and other items for low-income and homeless people in Riverside, California.

I am currently working with the Phoenix Org to have an OC Recovery Tai Chi club and am also working on advocating for proper housing for those in recovery. Please email me at if you would like to get involved with my chapter, I appreciate any interest and help making life a little better for those in recovery. It’s all about relationship!
