September is National Recovery Month

Every September, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)

sponsors Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance

use issues and celebrate the people who recover.

Prevention works, treatment is effective, and people do recover!

To celebrate Recovery Month in both Iowa and Nebraska during September, we:

● Promote the benefits of treatment for substance abuse and mental health disorders,

● Celebrate those who are in recovery,

● Appreciate friends and family who support those in recovery,

● Applaud the contributions of treatment providers, and;

● Spread the message that recovery in all its forms is possible.
