National Recovery Month is an international observance held every September to educate people about
how substance use and mental health services can enable individuals and their families to live healthy and rewarding lives. This observance celebrates the millions of people in recovery from mental health and substance use issues, reminding us that behavioral health is an essential component to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can, and do, recover.
On September 18, 2021 Partners in Care Network will be hosting a virtual panel with personal testimonies from peer recovery coaches and experts on addiction and recovery. This event will be broadcast our social media platform, and promises to be an educational, entertaining and informative production targeted at those in recovery and the community that supports them during this month long observance and their everyday struggles to overcome addiction.
The Medi Community Resource Center, The Medical Home Development Group and the Psychiatric Institute of Washington are founding members of the Partners in Care Network. The mission of the Partners in Care Network to advocate for policy to support recovery, create connections to supportive services that are vital and life-saving, and to engage affected individuals in meaningful civic action. This initiative convenes local peer recovery advocates with lived experience to build capacity for organized civic engagement with new leadership across the metro area. We are proud that our mission of recovery services and support is closely aligned with Mayor Bowser’s LiveLongDC campaign which also embraces the National Capital Region Compact to Combat Opioid Addiction.
