Celebrating National Recovery MonthSeptember is National Recovery Month and now in its 24th year it has evolved beautifully to reach out and bring all whose lives are touched by recovery to be honored. If you visit the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's (SAMHSA) National Recovery Month's website you can learn all about National Recovery Month. Here is a quick historical overview:
"Celebrated during the month of September, Recovery Month began in 1989 as TreatmentWorks! Month, which honored the work of the treatment and recovery professionals in the field. The observance evolved to National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month (Recovery Month) in 1998, when the observance expanded to include celebrating the accomplishment of individuals in recovery from substance use disorders. The observance evolved once again in 2011 to National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) to include all aspects of behavioral health."Today PACE Recovery Center would like to honor all of our treatment and recovery professionals and take a few minutes to introduce our readers to PACE Recovery Center's Clinical Director Dr. Brooke Buccola, PsyD, LMFT.
