National Recovery Month
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration, SAMHSA, sponsors National Recovery Month every September to give people a better understanding of mental and substance use disorders, an awareness of the problem and to celebrate those who commit to recovery. The 2019 theme is Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger.
This observance celebrates the millions of Americans 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.
How to get involved now:
WEAR TURQUOISE — on September 13, 2019 to serve as a conversation-starter about topics regarding addiction, substance abuse, recovery, etc.
ATTEND THE CELEBRATION OF SUCCESS CEREMONY — on September 23, 2019 at 6:00 PM at the Allen County Public Library where clients are recognized for their completion of the Hope & Harriet Addictions Recovery Program.
