From the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website:
National Recovery Month is held every September to educate everyone that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives. This observance celebrates the millions of people who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders, reminding us that treatment is effective and that people can and do recover. It also serves to help reduce the stigma and misconceptions that cloud public understanding of mental and substance use disorders, potentially discouraging others from seeking help.
The 2019 Recovery Month theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger,” reminds us that mental and substance use disorders affect all of us and that we are all part of the solution.
For questions or concerns about recovery or substance abuse, contact our Substance Abuse Counselor, Ms. Zuniga (email@example.com).
