National Recovery Month is held each September to raise awareness and share the message that people do recover from substance use disorders. Recovery month has embraced the permanent theme of “Every person. Every family. Every Community.” Through this message, Recovery Month seeks to educate the public, stakeholders, and communities about addiction as a disease by sharing resources that elevate recovery practices and the effectiveness of treatment.
NASADAD’s members serve as the lead agency in each State or jurisdiction responsible for managing federal funds dedicated to addressing substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery. This month, our Members wear purple to celebrate recovery and promote awareness of substance use disorder issues. NASADAD is grateful for the work all of our members do in their States and jurisdictions to support recovery every day of the year.
