For 18 years, Recovery Month has promoted the social benefits of alcohol and drug treatment, applauded the contributions of treatment providers, and increased awareness that recovery from these disorders is possible!
SAMHSA urges you to join the voices for recovery by supporting this year’s theme—Saving Lives, Saving Dollars. Alcohol and drug addiction exact an enormous financial and human toll on our society. That’s why it’s so important that we continue to invest in treatment! It benefits you, your family, and your community.
How can you support Recovery Month? It’s easy! You can:
- Plan events that will help raise awareness about the cost of substance use disorders.
- Publicize your event before Recovery Month even starts! You can tailor the media outreach templates in the Recovery Month toolkit and distribute them to local media outlets. You can even promote your event on the Recovery Month Web site!
- Provide information at your event by distributing the fact sheets in the toolkit. You also can use them throughout the year!
- Share your success with others! Tell others about the lessons you learned from your campaign and your accomplishments at the Recovery Month Web site!
