Recovery month is held every September by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to educate Americans about substance use and Mental Health disorders and how treatment services can enable those who are struggling to live a healthy and rewarding life. Now in its 29th year, the 2018 Recovery Month observance focuses on urban communities, health care providers, members of the media, and policymakers, highlighting the various entities that support recovery within our society. This year’s annual theme is” Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose, and Community.”
This year’s theme helps explores how integrated care, a strong community, a sense of purpose, and leadership contribute to effective treatments that sustain the recovery of persons with mental and substance use disorders. In addition, the 2018 observance also aims to increase awareness and encourage audiences to take advantage of the increased dialogue around behavioral health needs and the increased emphasis on tackling our nation’s opioid crisis.
The observance will work to highlight inspiring stories that help thousands of people from all walks of life find the path to hope, health, and wellness. In addition, the materials support SAMHSA’s message that prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover.
Help spread the word that RECOVERY IS POSSIBLE!
