National Recovery Month 2021 – Recovery is for Everyone

Posted by on September 8th, 2021 Posted in: Blog


National Recovery Month 2021 LogoSeptember is National Recovery Month, an observance held “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” (SAMHSA). It was begun by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) and has been organized by Faces and Voices of Recovery starting in 2020.

This year’s theme is “Recovery is for Everyone: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community”. This theme brings the focus onto community, aims to celebrate diversity and seeks to develop deeper understanding, caring, and connection that nurtures recovery. Recovery Month increases awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use disorders and promotes the message that behavioral health is essential to health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover.
