September is National Recovery Month, a nationwide observance dedicated to raising awareness about substance use disorders. It is also a visible time in which we recognize those who have recovered and challenge the social stigma associated with addiction.
Any human being from any demographic, cultural background, geographical area, income level, can become addicted. The stigma attached to this widespread disease impacts us all, both consciously and unconsciously. Every time someone uses their voice to share their experience with recovery, they change the conversation about addiction.
Happy Recovery Month!
