National Recovery Month

This September is the 25th year of Recovery Month. 

So let's celebrate!

Speak Up, Reach Out!
The goal of Recovery Month is to promote the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance disorders. 
This year's theme is "Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak up, Reach out," which encourages people to openly speak up about mental and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery.

So share your recovery story with the world to educate people and celebrate your successes! You can post your story at or read others stories at

"The Working definition of recovery from mental disorders and/or substance use disorders is
a process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential"

There are many amazing blogs which focus on recovery from many different substances. Some of these blogs you should visit are:
