National Recovery Month

Every September, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), sponsors National Recovery Month. Recovery Month highlights the achievements of individuals who have reclaimed their lives in long-term recovery, and honors the treatment and recovery service providers who make recovery possible. Recovery Month also promotes the message that recovery in all of its forms is possible and encourages citizens to take action to help expand and improve the availability of effective prevention, treatment, and recovery services for those in need.

In Berks, Recovery Month is recognized with an annual Recovery Walk, and with the Soberstock music festival. In addition, every year leaders in the community and individuals in recovery from substance use disorder gather to thank the County Commissioners for their support of treatment and recovery services.
