Looking ahead: September is National Recovery Month

Published on

Each SeptemberRecovery Month promotes and supports new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the existence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible.

Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery from substance use and mental health, much like how improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions are celebrated such as diabetes, asthma, and heart disease.

It is a powerful and important time to show support for those who have been impacted by substance use disorder. 

To celebrate locally:

Recovery Flags have been provided to area businesses designated as Recovery Friendly Workplaces (RFW) by SOS Recovery Community Organization and the statewide RFW Initiative. Look for the purple flags in your city or town!

To find out how to become a Recovery Friendly Workplace and join the ever-growing community of more than 300 businesses that are reducing the stigma that can prevent people from getting the help they need, contact Eileen Lawton at SOS: elawton@sosrco.org. The process is simple, and the benefits are far-reaching. For more information: http://ow.ly/f2KY50Jm9ax

A Recovery Rally will kick off at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, September 10th in Henry Law Park in Dover. The Fourth Annual Rally hosted by SOS Recovery Community Organization is a fun and informative family-friendly event that features a variety of exhibitors from recovery/harm reduction organizations, activities to engage all ages, motivational speakers, performances by The Block Collaborative Dance Company, Wildlife Encounters, Forever FRESH, and DarealaFlex45. There will be lots of delicious food to enjoy from Red’s Good Vibes, Nommmunism, and The Big Bad Food Truck. 

The event is free and highlights the message of hope in recovery embracing all recovery pathways, including harm reduction, and all that are impacted by substance use disorder. It will run until 3 p.m.
