Recovery Month Logo

National Recovery Month 2018: Recovery Month promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substanceuse disorders, celebrates people in recovery, lauds the contributions of treatment and service providers, and promotes the message that recovery in all its forms is possible. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.

Recovery Month provides a platform to recognize all in recovery, including family, friends and the professionals who serve them. Individuals in recovery often go unnoticed by the broader population; therefore, Recovery Month provides a vehicle to celebrate and express gratitude for recovery with neighbors, friends, and colleagues. The observance also encourages citizens to take action to help expand and improve the availability of effective treatment for those in need.

Now in its 29th year, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) sponsors National Recovery Month in September each year to increase awareness and understanding of mental and/or substance use disorders. The 2018 Recovery Month theme,"Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose, and Community," explores how integrated care, a strong community, sense of purpose, and leadership contribute to effective treatments that sustain the recovery of persons with mental and substance use disorders.
