What is National Recovery Month?
National Recovery Month is an annual observance celebrated every September since 1989. In September, and throughout the year, Recovery Month spreads the message that:
- Behavioral health is essential to health
- Prevention works
- Treatment is effective
- People can and do recover
This Year's Theme
"Recovery is for Everyone: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community" reminds people in recovery and those who support them, that recovery belongs to all of us. We are all called to end gatekeeping and welcome everyone to recovery by lowering barriers to recovery support, creating inclusive spaces and programs, and broadening our understanding of what recovery means for people with different experiences.
Recovery Ally Training
To honor National Recovery Month, the UNO Collegiate Recovery Community is hosting a Recovery Ally Training on Monday, September 20 from 10 A.M. to noon in the CEC rooms 201, 205, and 209.
Participants will learn more about recovery, how to support people in recovery, how to have conversations with someone about their substance use, and how to use inclusive language about recovery. This is a fast-paced and interactive training session. All students, staff, and faculty are encouraged to attend.
Register to Attend
Due to COVID-19 precautions, training is limited to the first 30 registered participants.
