September is National Recovery Month!

Recovery Month, sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is a celebration of individuals living in recovery, working to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders. In Vermont, the Vermont Recovery Network has a variety of resources to offer.
Mental and substance use disorders affect millions of Americans. Supporting recovery strengthens our families and our communities, encourages public awareness, and helps people begin their recovery journeys. Vermont-based LGBTQ Community Centers, like Outright and Pride Center, are examples of where support can be found that fits SAMHSA’s mission. To be connected with resources that you or your loved ones need, call 2-1-1 or text your zip code to 898211.
