Across the Nation, plans are well under way for September’s 16th annual National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month.

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 month.

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 and Spanish.

Recovery Month planning kits and commemorative posters will be available soon.

For more information about this year’s Recovery Month, visit www.recoverymonth.gov/2005. To order Recovery Month toolkits, posters, or other materials, contact SAMHSA’s National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information at P.O. Box 2345, Rockville, MD 20847-2345. Telephone: 1 (800) 729-6686 (English and Spanish) or 1 (800) 487-4889 (TDD). End of Article
