Celebrating Recovery this Month…and Every Day

2014 Natl Recovery Month logo


National Recovery Month
celebrates its 25th anniversary this month. Organized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), this year’s National Recovery Month theme is “Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out.” Throughout September, Americans everywhere are encouraged to speak openly about mental health and substance use disorders. National Recovery Month is first and foremost a celebration of individuals who have committed to recovery and taking control of their long-term health. It also honors the many service providers in the U.S. who offer prevention, treatment and recovery assistance.

Although not true for every individual, substance abuse and mental health disorders are prevalent among those who experience homelessness. At Calvary, we develop holistic strategies with women so they can focus on improving their mental and emotional health, building positive relationships and using effective coping mechanisms. Women regularly meet with their case managers, engage in individual and group therapy, attend daily Relapse Prevention Group meetings and participate in activities that can promote healing.

This month and every single day, we celebrate women at Calvary like Tamara and Paula who faced anxiety or drug addiction with courage and determination. We recognize women who re-commit every day to staying sober when it might be the hardest thing they do. We also thank the dedicated employees and volunteers who support ongoing recovery by counseling, teaching and connecting women to easily accessible resources.

The National Recovery Month website includes a library of helpful resources for anyone interested in learning more about addictions, treatment and recovery.
