Recovery Month - September 2020
Join the Voices for Recovery: Celebrating Connections
National Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives. Now in its 31st year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those living in recovery.
One of the things that we hope that the RISE Recovery Community Outreach Center can provide is the idea that there is hope, no matter where you are in your life, no matter what has happened to you, no matter how down you feel you are, there is a place to go where there are people who will support you in your recovery.
You must be the one who chooses recovery
There are many steps to the treatment and recovery process. The only way you can overcome your substance abuse disorder and be successful in your recovery is if you choose to get better. Nobody in your life, whether a loved one, health care professional, or judge will make that decision for you. Until you make the personal choice to overcome your addiction, you will still be fighting the toughest battle of your life.
