What is Recovery Month?

Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery from substance abuse, just as we celebrate improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease.

Each September, Recovery Month works to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible.


Posting events on theĀ Recovery Month site is voluntary. Therefore, this list is not inclusive of all events that may be happening in your area. Be sure to check your local area resource listings as well.
