September is National Recovery Month.
Although addiction is a year-round and lifelong struggle, in September, we celebrate the success of those in recovery.
We acknowledge and provide education to the public on the importance of supporting those that struggle with drug and alcohol abuse, mental health disorders, and other behavioral addictions.
The Path to Recovery – An Occasion for Inspiration & Celebration
National Recovery Month highlights how important it is for all of us to be there for those struggling with substance abuse and addiction, as well as mental health disorders, during their treatment process.
This month is a reminder that these individuals require strong support systems and effective resources to continue their journey to a healthier and happier life free from addiction.
Treatment is Effective With Proper Help and Support
One thing is clear: Treatment is effective with the proper help, resources, and prevention plans in place.
Millions of people have found themselves struggling with abuse and addiction issues, and millions of people have successfully transformed their lives through recovery treatment programs.
The rise in addiction cases is a concerning issue. Every day action is being taken to help troubled individuals regain control of their lives and finally become free from addiction.
Millions of Americans have effectively engaged in rehab treatment programs, reaching new levels of sobriety that they may never have thought they would be able to reach.
Success Stories Will Inspire Others
National Recovery Month is a month to celebrate the accomplishments and achievements that these individuals have made during their progress throughout the recovery process.
It is with great hope that the success stories of these individuals who have surpassed addiction will inspire others to take that step toward sobriety.
In addition, National Recovery Month is meant to bring more awareness to those who may not be as educated on the true issues of addiction and mental health issues that millions of people struggle with daily.
2020 – “Join the Voices for Recovery: Celebrating Connections”
A new theme is picked as a focal point for each National Recovery Month to continue to bring more awareness to addiction and share the success stories of addicts that beat addiction.
This year’s theme is: “Join the Voices for Recovery: Celebrating Connections” with a focus on offering as much support and encouragement as possible for those struggling with addiction, abuse, and mental health issues.
There is no “one plan for all” when it comes to treatment plans.
Treatment plans are customized based on an individual’s specific needs, desires, commitment, effort, time, choice of substance(s), and much more.
Therefore, education on addiction is so essential for the public to be aware of in order to offer the support that these individuals need to reach sobriety.
Let Us Put Our Focus on Support and Resources
Faces & Voices of Recovery offers a valuable Recovery Month Toolkit that users can download to view various resources to help acknowledge and celebrate the gains that addicted individuals have made while on their own recovery path.
And, of course, with the pandemic of COVID-19 turning the world upside down, drug and alcohol addiction has only increased, in addition to mental health disorders, such as anxiety and depression.
Many people turn to substances or other behavioral addictions to cope with these challenging times leading to truly damaging effects.
This is why this year’s National Recovery Month is so significant to observe and support so that no one who may be struggling feels alone; and that those who have made momentous strides in their recovery are celebrated for their achievements and growth.
What can you do to get involved in observing and spreading awareness for National Recovery Month:
• Share information with your family, friends, colleagues, and so on.
• Download the National Recovery Month Toolkit to share online, in your community, throughout your neighborhood, etc.
