Recovery is real and possible; 70% of adults who have had a mental health or substance use condition are in recovery. When people access treatment and recovery supports and practice self-care, they can regain their lives and contribute to their families and communities.
Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to promote evidence-based treatment, recovery practices and the communities who make recovery possible.
Wellness in recovery encompasses a whole person’s life, not just their illness. Access to housing, education, social support and employment affect the ability to recover.
