Ways to Take Part in Recovery Month

It’s National Recovery Month and there’s no better time to help raise awareness, stop the stigma against addiction and spread the message that treatment is effective and people do recover.

There are a number of ways that you can get involved this September – and why not? The goal, after all, is to celebrate those who have committed to recovery and who are working hard to build a new, healthy sober life – just like you!    

So what are you waiting for? Here are a few ways to get involved this Recovery Month: 
  • Spread the word on social media: You can update your FB status to include your recovery date or post an image on Instagram that represents something you’re proud of now that you’re sober. also has banners, flyers and customizable posters for anyone to use to promote Recovery Month on social media.
  • Attend an in-person or online event: keeps a running list of events that take place around the country so you can find an event near you or learn about local activities to support recovery efforts. National Recovery month activities range from walks and runs to concerts to cookouts and more. There are also webinars, online chats and live Tweeting. 
  • Share your recovery story. Certainly you can share your story under the “Voices for Recovery” section on – but it doesn't have to be that formal. Just taking the time this month to share your recovery story with a friend or coworker or family member is a great way to start spreading awareness. Of course, how much you want to share is a personal decision. But by being visible and letting others know you’re in recovery, you may help someone else take the first step toward sobriety.
