NATIONAL RECOVERY MONTH IN LAS CRUCES IS YEAR-ROUND
Each September Recovery Month, now in its 32nd year, works to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence 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. The theme for 2021 National Recovery Month is Recovery is for everyone; every person, every family, every community. It is a time to commit to change individually and institutionally for increased and enhanced healthcare and human/social services for people who use drugs. It is a time to share information, inspiration and insight for everyone to get more involved to reduce the burden of substance use on persons, families and communities. Ideally, the enthusiasm and energy of this single month will result in a year-long dedication to make a difference in the borderland area in terms of the opioid epidemic and the impact of other substances, including alcohol, methamphetamine, and tobacco. Below you will find some activities you can do during September to celebrate Recovery and frankly for the rest of the year too. The toolkit on The National Council link in the Resources section is quite helpful as are the online items from the Bureau of Justice Assistance's COSSAP Resource Center.
