National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) is a national observance held each September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life. Recovery Month is sponsored by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders and celebrate the people who recover.
Now in its 33rd year, Recovery Month highlights the achievements of individuals who have reclaimed their lives in long-term recovery and honors the treatment and recovery service providers who make recovery possible. Recovery Month also promotes the message that recovery in all of its forms is possible and encourages citizens to take action to help expand and improve the availability of effective prevention, treatment, and recovery services for those in need.
In 2022, it was decided to replace the annual theme for Recovery Month with a permanent tagline. As such, the 2021 Recovery Month theme, “Recovery is for Everyone: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community” has been adopted as the permanent tagline message ever reminding people in recovery and those who support them, that recovery belongs to all of us.
