For this post, I invited Sarah Ikenberry from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to share more about their fabulous “Recovery Month” programming. Did you know that each September is “National Recovery Month”?
I didn’t until Sarah contacted me.
I think it is so very important to recognize ourselves and others for the important work we are doing by choosing to recover, to heal, to uplift ourselves, and to support others in doing the same. As we share our stories and our involvement in recovery-oriented activities and events, we serve as mentors to others who aspire to do the same.
SAMHSA’s Recovery Month highlights individuals who are making a difference in their own lives and also are willing to serve as inspirations to others. With year-round activities designed to support National Recovery Month, SAMHSA is a national advocate for doing the hard work of recovery, one life at a time.
An extra-special thank you goes out to Sarah for taking the time to compose this guest blog to share more about all the ways we can participate in Recovery Month in September and year-round!
