As 12-Steppers so wisely say, recovery happens "one day at a time." September is National Recovery Month, but recovery also happens on October 1st and beyond. As the holiday season approaches, it may become increasingly challenging for those in recovery.
Staying connected to those who support one's recovery is an essential for long-term wellness. For more information about recovery 24/7, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's website can provide inspiration and resources for recovery year-round.

Today, and every day, "Prevention works. Treatment is effective. People recover."
