Annually each September throughout America is the celebration of National Recovery Month. Started by SAMSHA and, in 2020, tuned over to the organization Faces & Voices of Recovery, National Recovery Month is an annual celebration throughout America of recovery, observing those who have overcome the struggles of addiction and mental health issues, and highlight new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices.

Throughout the month of September, in states and communities across the country, organizations will host events that celebrate recovery. There will be 5K runs/walks, speaking engagements, people in recovery will share their stories and experiences, family-friendly community events, and other educational and informative sessions will be held. National Recovery Month 2022 is not just a month to celebrate recovery through various events, but also offer a platform where hope can be offered to those still struggling with addiction and mental health issues.

National Recovery Month offers an opportunity to reach those individuals through stories of hope, information about addiction treatment and recovery resources, and harm reduction initiatives. National Recovery Month 2022 also offers connection, as communities throughout the nation come together to celebrate the recovery community, and recovery communities in different areas of the country gather to share their hope, strength, and recovery, so that others in need of help can be reached and guided towards a life of recovery.

Here in Central Pennsylvania, many community organizations, treatment facilities, hospitals and healthcare systems, and government entities will host events throughout the region that will unite local communities and recovery communities in a shared celebration of recovery from addiction. These events will help to break the stigma of addiction and mental health, make community members aware of resources for addiction treatment and recovery support, and offer hope to those still suffering.
