Established in 1989, National Recovery Month has endorsed the effectiveness of addiction treatment and mental health services in promoting a healthy mental, emotional and physical quality of life. Observed every September, Recovery Month celebrates the successful recovery of individuals with mental and/or substance use disorders and recognizes the efforts made by service providers for prevention, treatment and recovery in the field.
Recovery Month endorses individual and community effort in enhancing awareness and prevention and accessibility to treatment and recovery services. Individuals may participate in Recovery Month’s goals for promotion of overall wellbeing by reading recovery information, attending local events and asking their local official to sign a proclamation.
