Recovery...It's a community thing.
National Recovery Month (Recovery Month, sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live a healthy and rewarding life.
Now in its 30th year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease.
Each year, Recovery Month selects a new focus and theme to spread the message and share the successes of treatment and recovery.
The 2019 Recovery Month observance will focus on community members, first responders, the healthcare community, and youth and emerging leaders highlighting the various entities that support recovery within our society.
The 2019 Recovery Month theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger," emphasizes the need to share resources and build networks across the country that support recovery in all its forms.
