National Recovery Month


Celebrate 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.

National Recovery Month is sponsored locally by SATUCI Youth Partners, Center Associates, Life Connections and Primary Health Care.

Celebrating Recovery and Educating Communities

The 2017 Recovery Month theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Strengthen Families and Communities,” inspires communities to be socially inclusive, offering support to those with mental and/or substance use disorders. It also encourages members of the community to seek help when needed, lend a hand, and contribute to their community as citizens, parents, employees, students, volunteers, and leaders.

For 27 years, Recovery Month has joined together millions of people across the United States to celebrate recovery and educate communities about substance use and mental disorders. For more information, contact Shannon Chyma at SATUCI at 641-752-5421.
