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.
