2015 national recovery month

September marks the beginning of National Recovery Month, which for the past 26 years has sought to educate Americans on the reality and dangers of substance abuse and addiction, as well as the importance of breaking the stigma of addiction so that those in need can get treatment and begin their journey into recovery. This year’s theme is “Visible, Vocal, Valuable,” which aims to focus on the many who have found long-term recovery through addiction treatment, as well as the treatment facilities that made their recovery possible.

Many cities across the U.S. will be holding events during Recovery Month. Some of our Bradford Health locations will also be participating in these events in order to both engage and educate the public in the importance and availability of substance addiction treatment.

The following list includes events Bradford will be participating in, as well as other events that are nearby. To look for other events in your area, visit http://www.recoverymonth.gov/events/find-events
