Celebrate September 2012 National Recovery Month

September is National Recovery Month which not only provides education for all of us about substance abuse disorders and the importance of prevention but also celebrates people in recovery. The purpose of Recovery Month is to let people know how important behavioral health is to our overall health and well-being.

Thousands of people have learned how to overcome their use of drugs and alcohol and remain clean and sober but there are still an enormous amount of people throughout the United States that are still in need of treatment. Most all states participate in Recovery Month and put on community events to promote substance abuse awareness, prevention, education and the importance of treatment.

SAMHSA's Voices for Recovery

SAMHSA provides an area on their National Recovery Month website for people in recovery to share their success stories with others which are inspiring and also encouraging for people currently in treatment or those who are still in need of help. You can also share your own success story on their website to help others. There are also Recovery Month e-Cards you can send to someone in honor of their recovery success.

Recovery from substance abuse disorders isn't easy but you can recover, rebuild your life and achieve your recovery goals. Find an event celebrating National Recovery Month nearest you to get inspired, educated and honor everyone in their recovery success.
