Recovery Centers of America Celebrates
National Recovery Month
National Recovery Month is a time to celebrate how far those in recovery from substance use and mental health have come. It is also a time to promote 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 possible. Recovery Centers of America is committed to supporting Recovery Month every year. We work to provide our patients with the best possible care and resources so they can continue on their journey to recovery. We also work to educate our community about addiction and mental health so that more people can get the help they need. Join us in celebrating Recovery Month this September.
