National Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can empower those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.
Recovering from addiction is more than just removing alcohol or other drugs from one’s life. It’s an ongoing process that involves healing on all levels. An additional theme that runs throughout our proposed programming is the idea that holistic well-being is crucial to recovery.

Books are helpful tools in the journey to recovery but are not a replacement for traditional forms of addiction treatment. If you or someone you know are in need of counseling, please visit the Sobriety Library for a list of contacts.
