National Alcohol and Drug Recovery Month is observed every year in September. The nation has observed this month for the past thirty years. Its purpose is twofold: to celebrate the gains made by those in recovery and educate the general public about high-quality substance abuse treatment and mental health services. If you or someone in your life is struggling, call Georgia Addiction Treatment Center at 833.641.0661 to learn about our addiction treatment programs.
National Alcohol and Drug Recovery Month 2021
Observing National Alcohol and Drug Recovery Month is all about shining a light on the millions of lives that addiction recovery has transformed. The stigma around mental health and addiction remains widespread in the United States. Success stories related to recovery often don’t get noticed by the general public. That makes this month key to raising awareness about effective addiction prevention, high-quality treatment options, and the fact that people can and do achieve sobriety.
Faces & Voices of Recovery will lead the National Alcohol and Drug Recovery Month in 2021. In previous years, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration sponsored this month. This year’s theme is “Recovery is For Everyone: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community.” Part of this year’s celebrations and educational opportunities is National Addiction Professionals Day on September 20. This day serves to celebrate and honor the work and contributions of addiction professionals.
Addiction Recovery Awareness
Faces & Voices of Recovery is acting as a hub for this year’s events. In addition, the organization has long played a role in supporting addiction recovery awareness and providing resources to those struggling with addiction. Their resources fall into two categories: recovery stories and mutual aid.
Recovery stories are personal stories from those who have experienced addiction. They are sources of encouragement and inspiration to people struggling with addiction. They can also act as an educational tool in helping the average person develop an understanding and deeper empathy for people who suffer from addiction.
Meanwhile, their mutual aid resources focus on connecting people to volunteer recovery mutual aid groups. Groups are offered in both online and in-person formats. These groups support a variety of stakeholders related to addiction recovery, including:
- People in recovery
- Family and friends of people in recovery
- Addiction treatment service providers
- Allied service professionals
If you’re ready to celebrate awareness for addiction recovery, please reach out to Georgia Addiction Treatment Center today at 833.641.0661.
