There are over 390 events happening across the country this month, to celebrate “National Recovery Month“. The concept of a celebration of recovery has been around for at least 24 years, known first as “National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Awareness Month” and then “National Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Month”, before the major sponsoring groups associated with the movement consolidated their programs.
The timing is appropriate. September is a time of change. Summer leaves us and Autumn/Fall arrives. Our children return to school. Why not change our lives as well? What better time to take back our lives from the control of addictions and mental health issues? The National Recovery Month events available to us offer hope and positive reinforcement that we can succeed. Millions of Americans have walked this path before, and succeeded in turning their lives around after struggles with substance abuse.
