Did you know that September is National Recovery Month? National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.
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 contributes to effective treatments that sustain the recovery of persons with mental and substance use disorders. The observance will work to highlight inspiring stories to help people from all walks of life find the path to hope, health, and wellness.
Locally, September 22nd will be the Recovery Walk 2018 event held in Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Recovery Walk is the largest in the country, expecting over 27,000 people to attend. Be a part of this important event and help put a positive face on recovery and end the stigma surrounding recovery.
