Recovery Month Toolkit

Body

With the right treatment, support, and resources, recovery is possible for everyone. Use this Toolkit to learn more about what SAMHSA is doing to support people in recovery and how to share this information with your audiences. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those in or seeking recovery from mental and substance use disorders.

The Toolkit is a One-Stop Shop

  • Social media content to help spread awareness about the process of recovery and to share hopeful message that most people who get help do recover.
  • Resources for learning about and supporting those in recovery.
  • Promotional materials about recovery in September and beyond.

Our toolkit was created with our partners in mind. All materials are designed to be shared with your audiences and across your media channels; they are downloadable and shareable, and some of the material is customizable.

How to Use the Toolkit

  • Copy, download, and share our social messages, graphics, and promotional materials in ways that fit the needs of your audiences and channels.
  • Use our hashtags, including #RecoveryMonth, when sharing any Recovery Month–related content.
  • Use our tools in tandem with the best practices with your communities and networks.

National Recovery Month Toolkit

The key messages and weekly themes outlined below provide a foundation from which partners can develop messages that resonate with their specific audiences.

Feel free to use the themes and key messages to develop your own posts throughout the month. If you prefer, pre-crafted social media content is also available.


Week 1: September 4–10

This week we highlight supporting youth and young people in recovery and the crucial role that families and caregivers play in supporting individuals who are already in recovery or are seeking to start their recovery journey.

Key messages:

The recovery journey isn’t just for the person with the substance use or mental health issue—it includes everyone who cares about them.

  • Because recovery is holistic, families and caregivers can play an important role in supporting their loved one’s journey of recovery.
  • Staying connected with supportive loved ones and trusted friends can help young people balance school and recovery.
  • Families and caregivers face unique challenges when helping a loved one who is in recovery and working to overcome mental health or substance use challenges.

Week 2: September 11–17

This week’s focus is ensuring that people of color, youth, older adults, LGBTQI+, rural residents, veterans, and people with disabilities have equitable access to recovery resources.

Key messages:

When recovery care and support reflect someone’s unique cultural values, they are more likely to succeed.

  • No matter where you are, no matter who you are, no one is alone in recovery.
  • Each person’s recovery journey is unique, and it should be based on their individual life goals and values.
  • With the right supports, tools, and resources, everyone can recover and lead a meaningful life.

Week 3: September 18–24

Our focus this week is promoting a whole-person approach to wellness that addresses the social determinants of health in addition to physical and mental symptoms.

Key messages:

Wellness in recovery encompasses a person’s whole life, not just their substance use or mental health issue.

  • When people are equipped with evidence-based treatment and recovery supports, they can regain their lives and contribute to their families and communities.
  • Access to housing, education, social support, and employment affect the ability to enter and maintain recovery.
  • Recovery is personal and requires tailored, individualized care and supports.

Week 4: September 25–30

This week we highlight the importance of peer support and peer support services in guiding individuals, families, and caregivers through recovery.

Key messages:

By sharing their stories and lived experience, peers engage others in recovery with a vital sense of belonging, support, and hope.

  • Being able to connect with someone who has lived experience in recovery makes it possible to see what is possible for yourself.
  • Peers know how to access services and supports that are essential to recovery.
  • Peer support can help the families and caregivers of someone in recovery navigate their own unique challenges and recovery journeys.

    • X (formerly Twitter): @samhsagov
    • LinkedIn: @samhsa
  • Use the Key Messages: Please use the key messages in your content, such as reminding your followers about the importance of acceptance, support, and inclusion in recovery, and that most people who get help with mental health substance use issues do recover.
  • Incorporate the Weekly Themes: Each week of Recovery Month has a different theme, and you can tailor your content accordingly. For example, during the first week, you could share stories of acceptance and support for the people in your life who are in recovery or looking to begin their recovery journey. During Week 2, you could promote resources that advance opportunities for recovery to underserved and under-resourced populations.
  • Use the Hashtags: Please use the official hashtags, including #RecoveryMonth (primary hashtag), #RecoveryMonth2023, #Recovery, #RecoverySupport, #RecoveryistheExpectation, #RecoveryIsPossible, #RecoveryIsReal, #RecoveryEquity, #Recovery4ALL, and #LivedExperience.

  • Promote Resources: Please promote our resources to provide important information for people in recovery, people thinking about asking for help, and family and friends who provide ongoing support.

Recovery is individualized and has many pathways. Pathways may include clinical, non-clinical and self-management pathways. Often, people utilize multiple paths. Following are a few examples:

  • Peer supported recovery involves the use of structured recovery mutual aid groups, peer recovery support specialists, recovery housing, collegiate recovery programs, and others to initiate and/or maintain recovery.
  • Treatment-assisted recovery uses professional help with a therapist, a doctor, or another credentialed professional. This can include medication, therapy, or a combination of the two.
  • Faith-based recovery support services are religious or spiritual frameworks of recovery that can include congregation-based support services that help during the recovery process.
  • Natural recovery occurs when a person achieves recovery from mental or substance use problems on their own through interpersonal and interpersonal resources without professional treatment or involvement in a recovery mutual aid community.

What works for one person may not work for another. It is important to support a person in or seeking recovery as they make their own decisions about which pathway is right for them.
