September is National Recovery Month

More than 23 million Americans are in long-term recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs and are living proof that recovery is real and that it benefits themselves, their families and communities. This observance is held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life. Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate health improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions. The observance reinforces the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover. There are millions of Americans whose lives have been transformed through recovery. Since these successes often go unnoticed, Recovery Month provides a vehicle for everyone to celebrate these accomplishments. Each September, tens of thousands of prevention, treatment, and recovery programs and facilities around the country celebrate Recovery Month. They speak about the achievements made by those in recovery and share their success stories. In doing so, everyone helps to increase awareness and furthers a greater understanding about the diseases of mental and substance use disorders.
