Celebrate National Recovery Month on September 1 as we recognize the incredible progress and achievements of those who have overcome addiction, mental health issues, and other substance abuse problems. This special day was first established in 1989 to raise awareness about the importance of treatment and recovery services for those struggling with mental health or substance use disorder. So join us this year as we honor their hard work and celebrate all that they've achieved!
