September is Recovery Month!

Updated: Feb 8




Since 1989, Recovery Month has been held every September to promote and support new treatment and recovery practices, the nation’s strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and communities who make recovery in all its forms possible. Recovery is a deeply personal journey, encompassing physical, mental, and emotional healing, and it continues throughout one's life.

The purpose of Recovery Month is to raise awareness and educate the public about the prevalence of substance use disorders and mental health challenges, breaking down the stigma. Additionally, this month advocates work to provide hope, encourage support, promote treatment, and celebrate achievements.

  2. Share Your Story: Inspire others by sharing your or someone else's recovery journey.

  3. Volunteer: Support organizations helping individuals in recovery through your time or skills.

  4. Educate Yourself: Learn more about addiction, mental health, and recovery to reduce stigma.

  5. Offer Support: Reach out to friends or family members facing addiction or mental health challenges, showing your willingness to support their recovery journey.
