Recovery Month


September is National Recovery Month

National Recovery Month promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment and recovery for mental and substance use disorders, celebrates people in recovery, recognizes the contributions of treatment and service providers and promotes the message that recovery is possible. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.

Fairbanks supports National Recovery Month and we hope you will join us. In honor of National Recovery Month we are sponsoring a few different activities and participating in many others within the Indianapolis community.
