National Recovery Month Planning Partnership
The Academy for Addiction Professionals is proud to announce that we have joined SAMHSA’s National Recovery Month promotional activities as a planning partner. Recovery month, held in September, is important resource for those seeking information about treatment for alcohol and drug abuse.
2014 is National Recovery Month’s 25th year promoting prevention and treatment as well as recognizing and supporting those who are in recovery and those who facilitate recovery through their service to the industry. The result has allowed prevention and treatment opportunities for those that otherwise would not have had the resources to receive appropriate intervention.
The Academy for Addiction Professionals strongly believes that initiatives such as National Recovery Month are an integral part of the addiction industry’s ultimate goal of spreading a message of hope. After all, only a small fraction of those abusing substances actually received appropriate treatment. As a result, thousands of men and women lose their lives to this insidious disease every year. Further, National Recovery Month offers a central resource for those were seeking information as much of the information available to those who search the Internet is fragmented and confusing.
Stay tuned for updates and news about the events that the Academy will be organizing to promote National Recovery Month. In the meantime, we encourage anyone who has been affected by substance abuse or addiction to talk to their friends and family about supporting National Recovery Month through individual events or by rallying the community.
