Recovery from mental and substance use disorders remains a pressing public health crisis – one that isn’t always discussed as openly and honestly as possible.
September has been deemed National Recovery Month by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The month is designed to raise awareness about the issues surrounding the issue and celebrate the successes of those who are in recovery.
