FBHA Recovery Awareness Month Resources
National Recovery Month is held every September to educate people about how substance use and mental health services can enable individuals and families to live healthy lives. It promotes the benefits of prevention, treatment and recovery for mental and substance use disorders. Now its 31st year, National Recovery Month celebrates those who have overcome substance-use disorders and encourages those in the fight.
Once sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), National Recovery Month is now housed under Faces & Voices, a member of the National Recovery Community.
The theme for 2020 National Recovery Month is Join the Voices for Recovery: Celebrating Connections.
