is observed each September to educate Americans about substance use treatment and mental health services that work to help those who are in need recover and live healthy, rewarding lives.
This year’s theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose and Community”
explores how integrated care, a strong community, sense of purpose and leadership contributes to effective treatments that sustain the recovery of persons with mental and substance use disorders.
Mental health and substance use disorders affect all communities nationwide. Local communities can play a significant role in supporting those in recovery
as they gain the independence, income and resources necessary to participate in fulfilling their lives.
Support from families is essential to recovery, so it’s important that family members have the tools
to start conversations about prevention, treatment and recovery.
Recovery has transformed the lives of millions of Americans. Recovery Month provides a platform to celebrate their successes. Find a Recovery Month event near you
