NATIONAL RECOVERY MONTH
Sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Recovery Month promotes the societal benefits of treatment for substance use and mental disorders, celebrates people in recovery, lauds the contributions of treatment providers, and promotes the message that recovery in all its forms is possible. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.

Additionally, we provide feedback to the SAMHSA on the national Recovery Month campaign theme, strategy, and literature. Finally, we assist individuals, groups, and organizations in the New York area in organizing Recovery Month events.
