September is National Recovery Month: Why “RE”covery?

September is National Recovery Month. There are lots of events going on, in Maine and beyond, to celebrate those in recovery from alcohol and/or drug addiction as well as mental disorders.

The month reminds us that prevention works, treatment is effective and people do recover.

To kick the month off, here’s a video from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) on Why REcovery?
