Don't Forget that September is National Recovery Month!


By

Summer is quickly fading and school will be starting in the not-so-distant future.  We are just 11 days from September.  Can you believe it?  What does September hold?

Besides the inevitable start of school and the changing of the leaves, another important thing to mention is that September is National Recovery month and this year it celebrates 25 years! Recovery Month is, "a national observance that educates Americans on the fact that addiction treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life. The observance’s main focus is to laud the gains made by those in recovery from these conditions, just as we would those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover"

For more information, you can check out their great website here!

At The Coleman Institute, we love National Recovery Month and can't wait to join the festivities next month.  We agree that, "prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover." If you or someone you love is in need of detox off of alcohol, benzos, opiates, Methadone, or Suboxone, please do not hesitate to contact Jennifer Pius or Amy Stewart at 1.877.773.3869 today. 
We are here to help you!
