National Recovery Month
National Recovery Month is a national observance that educates Americans on the fact that addiction treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover. BJA is proud to support this work through its Drug Courts and Veteran Treatment Court Programs.
Join BJA for the month of September to celebrate the 31st anniversary of National Recovery Month. For more information on news and events, visit the National Drug Court Resource Center website.
