2006 Recovery Month Web Site Launched

The Web site launch for 2006 National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month (Recovery Month) marks the beginning of this annual SAMHSA event's 17th year of celebrating the hope of recovery. Sponsored by SAMHSA's Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), Recovery Month activities are held nationwide during the month of September each year.

This year's theme is "Join the Voices for Recovery: Build a Stronger, Healthier Community."

The Web site offers the "Road to Recovery 2006" series, which will air 10 Web casts to premiere on the first Wednesday of each month and be archived for viewing at any time immediately afterwards.

The first Web cast, posted on January 11, serves as an informative introduction to September's 2006 Recovery Month observance. "The 2006 Road to Recovery" features CSAT Director H. Westley Clark, Associate Director for Consumer Affairs Ivette Torres (program host), and recovery community representatives from across the Nation.

Suggestions are provided to help individuals and communities nationwide discover how to become involved in Recovery Month at the local level.

Currently, downloadable 2006 flyers in English and Spanish also are available online. In addition, information is also available on how to receive periodic email updates on activities leading up to Recovery Month in September.
