Each September, thousands of prevention, treatment, and recovery programs and services around the country celebrate their successes and share them with their neighbors, friends, and colleagues in an effort to educate the public about recovery, how it works, for whom, and why. There are millions of Americans whose lives transform through recovery. These successes often go unnoticed by the broader population; therefore, Recovery Month provides a vehicle to celebrate these accomplishments.
This year, Recovery Month continues to promote the critical message that prevention works, treatment is effective, and people recover. The theme this year is: “Join the Voices for Recovery: It’s Worth It,” which is meant to emphasize that while the road to recovery may be difficult, the benefits of preventing and overcoming mental and/or substance use disorders are significant and valuable to individuals, families, and communities.
At Sunflower Wellness Retreat we want to celebrate the people who are recovering from alcohol and/or drug addiction. Daily during the month of September on our website and or Social Media Channels, we will be highlighting people who have successfully recovered from addiction.
This is the perfect opportunity to educate the community on the possibility of recovery and the ails of addiction. So many people in our community struggle with addiction and are under the impression that they can’t beat it. We hope with seeing the success of other addicts, that this will then motivate people to get help now.
Do you know of an addiction success story? Want to share it with us? If so please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we may showcase on our website or Social Media outlets.
