September is National Drug and Alcohol Recovery Month

In observance of September being National Drug and Alcohol Recovery Month, the national website, Recovery Month, “aims to promote the societal benefits of alcohol and drug use disorder treatment, laud the contributions of treatment providers, and promote the message that recovery from alcohol and drug disorders in all its forms is possible.” Be sure to check it out for stories and event information in your area. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and its Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) created the materials being distributed for Recovery Month.
