Message by Sasha C. Russell, Communications Specialist, Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling
September 2014 marks the 25th National Recovery Month. Organizations and governments across the United States are encouraged to endorse this month through proclamations, and recovery-focused events. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), “In its 25th year, Recovery Month promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment, and recovery for mental and substance use disorders. This year’s theme, ‘Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out,’ encourages people to openly speak up about mental and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery, and promotes ways individuals can use to recognize behavioral health issues and reach out for help. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.
