Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery from substance use and mental health, just as we celebrate improvements made by individuals who are recovering from other health issues such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease.
Recovery Month is organized by Faces & Voices of Recovery. Visit their website for additional information on the organization and recovery month.
‘Recovery Month works to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible.’
