About Yolonda Young Simmons

Yolonda Young Simmons takes pleasure in teaching, motivating and encouraging people to reach higher ground and achieve the best of everything that they would endeavor to do. As a co-dependent in recovery herself, helping others was second nature, but her denial about codependency was a hindrance to her own personal life unfulfilled. She always put others before herself. Yet, she did not want to accept the title as a "codependent." Her denial was so strong that only God could open her eyes to see the truth. Since the truth wasn't spoken of in the home, she lived a life of denial and instead she was taught "what goes on in this house stays in this house." Young Simmons believed the sky was blue and any and all drama at home was normal. She grew up with an alcoholic father and a codependent mother. Her family situation was the foundation that started her on a path of self discovery. Young Simmons is a award winning conference speaker, educator and human resources professional. She is also a Certified Clinical Supervisor for Addictions. She is an advocate to increase family support in the area of recovery and addiction. She is married to Dr. Ronald Simmons, cofounder of Free N One Christian Recovery Program. In 2012, Young Simmons launched Free N One Training Institute (FNOTI). The Training Institute equips Counselors to become certified to work with clients. In 2014, with the help of her husband and social media, Young Simmons was honored by the State of California for naming a street located in Compton, California. The street name is "Healthy Way." It is the main entrance leading into the newly remodeled Martin Luther King Hospital and Wellness Center. Today, Young Simmons is working on her own process of recovery as a codependent. She practice her recovery program every day, every hour and every moment when needed. Young Simmons has three children and currently lives in Los Angeles, California.show more
