What is Recovery Month?
National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) is a national observance held every September to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible. This year’s Recovery Month theme, “Recovery is for Everyone: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community”
“The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to supporting the millions of Americans in recovery by expanding and enhancing the nation’s recovery support services infrastructure. This Recovery Month, we can all recommit to supporting family members, friends, and neighbors in recovery.”
