Substance Abuse Recovery
Every September, hundreds of thousands of people from communities across the nation get together to celebrate recovery and to educate their communities about behavioral health issues.
Now in its 27th year, National Recovery Month celebrates people in recovery, lauds the contributions of treatment and service providers, and promotes the message that recovery is possible.
There are millions of Americans whose lives have been transformed through recovery. Since these successes often go unnoticed by the broader population, Recovery Month provides a vehicle for everyone to celebrate these accomplishments. Each September, tens of thousands of prevention, treatment, and recovery programs and facilities around the country celebrate National Recovery Month.
They speak about the gains made by those in recovery and share their success stories with their neighbors, friends, and colleagues. In doing so, everyone helps to increase awareness and furthers a greater understanding about the diseases of mental and substance use disorders.
Recovery Month highlights the achievements of individuals who have reclaimed their lives in long-term recovery and honors the treatment and recovery service providers who make recovery possible.
