September is National Recovery Month and promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment and recovery from substance use disorders. This year’s theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out,” encourages people to openly speak up about mental health and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery, and promotes ways individuals can use to recognize behavioral health issues and reach out for help.  Recovery Day spreads the message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.
