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!

Celebrate Recovery Month in both Iowa and Nebraska. Annually, during the month of 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.

● Spread the message that recovery is possible.


Join us at the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge (Council Bluffs side) on Saturday, September 28th, 2019 from 9-10am. Help us reach our goal of ONE THOUSAND HANDS to send an important message: Prevention works, treatment is effective and people do recover!

Help us send a positive message about recovery!
