Sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), this annual observance celebrates those in recovery, and aims to increase understanding of mental and substance use disorders, and educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives.
Across our footprint, a commitment to recovery and a belief in giving people second chances is at the core of what we do. Because we believe that work is a critical component of recovery, we work with individuals, communities, and government and private agencies across the globe to ensure that people in recovery have the opportunity to lead independent, productive lives and reach their own potential.
We are grateful for this opportunity to cast a spotlight on the hard work of recovery. It takes a community—including our skilled and dedicated staff who are working to change lives every day.
