Every year, the month of September brings a sense of change. We say goodbye to hot summer days and look forward to the upcoming cooler days of fall. But, the month of September is significant for another reason. It is the time for National Recovery Month celebrations across the U.S. During this time, recovering addicts are given a venue for sharing and celebrating their successes. Also, thousands of organizations and individuals step up to spread awareness about the dangers of drug abuse and the benefits of addiction treatment.
This national event which is sponsored by SAMHSA also spotlights the efforts of many dedicated individuals in the addiction treatment industry. Without their expertise and compassion, many struggling addicts would not be celebrating recovery today. Recovery Month also seeks to help people understand substance abuse and the mental health disorders that often accompany addiction.
A New Message of Hope Each Year
Recovery Month is now in its 29th year of spreading hope to those who struggle with addiction. This year’s theme is “Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose, and Community.” With this message, we hope to demonstrate how a strong community, integrated care, a sense of purpose, and leadership all work together.
SAMHSA provides a variety of resources for individuals or organizations who want to participate in any of the many events. A Recovery Month toolkit is available that makes it easy to get involved. It includes templates, logos, banners, flyers, brochures, information, tips for event planning, and many other helpful items. If you are interested in participating in National Recovery Month events, the toolkit information is here.
Who are the Recovery Month Planning Partners?
With support from SAMHSA and CSAT, the Recovery Month planning partners are responsible for planning the month-long events. The partners include more than 300 federal, local, and state government entities. Other partners include nonprofit organizations, treatment providers, and more.
You can help involve the national or local chapters in your state by asking them to collaborate on Recovery Month planning.
