September is National Recovery Month

Prevention Works-Treatment is Effective-People Recover

September is National Recovery Month, giving all of us the opportunity to celebrate those in recovery in our communities. Recovery month is intended to increase awareness and understanding of the pressing challenges of mental health and substance abuse issues. Over 23 million Americans are in long-term recovery. Public celebrations are planned for several locations in Utah, however, each of us can personally recognize and encourage the persons in recovery, families, community support groups and friends of recovery in our lives. 

This effort is promoted annually by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) which selected Salt Lake City as the national hub site for the Faces and Voices of Recovery and SAMSHA Recovery Month Rally. For more information on the September 9, 2017 Walk for Recovery please visit their website or contact Utah Support Advocates for Recovery Awareness (USARA) 385.210.0320 or
