Individuals with a mental or substance use disorder often feel isolated and alone. Yet millions of Americans experience these conditions. Individuals can get better when we create environments and relationships that promote acceptance and offer hope. Individuals in recovery achieve improved mental and physical health by forming stronger relationships with neighbors, families, and peers.
Recovery Month promotes new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the importance of a strong recovery community, and the dedication of those who make recovery possible.
Together we can help others realize the promise of recovery and give families the right support to help their loved ones.
