Across the Nation, plans are well under way for September’s
16th annual National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery
This year’s theme is “Join the Voices for
Recovery: Healing Lives, Families, and Communities,”
which celebrates the positive impact of treating alcohol
and drug use disorders in communities.
Coordinated by SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse
Treatment, the Recovery Month campaign highlights
ways to create awareness that alcohol and drug use disorders
can be managed effectively when an entire community supports
those who suffer from these treatable diseases.
Individuals, organizations, schools, and communities
are preparing for a variety of local activities. SAMHSA’s
award-winning Web site for Recovery Month offers
planning resources, fact sheets, online publications,
and downloadable Web banners. The site will also list
events across the country in a state-by-state interactive
registry. In addition, SAMHSA hosts the Road to Recovery
2005 multimedia series, featuring a new Web cast each
Visitors to the Web site can also sign up to receive
ongoing updates about Recovery Month events
and download Recovery Month fliers in both English
Recovery Month planning kits and commemorative
posters will be available soon.
