National Recovery Month celebrates the millions of Americans who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders, reminding us that treatment is effective and that people can and do recover. It also serves to help reduce the stigma and misconceptions that cloud public understanding of mental and substance use disorders, potentially discouraging others from seeking help.
For the 30th anniversary, there is a new logo which adds the “r” symbol, representing “r is for Recovery”.
9/30 – Hope Sunday – Tuscarawas
The Tuscarawas County Anti-Drug Coalition partners with faith communities to view this short film during services, to bring hope to communities impacted by addiction. The film features the testimony of a local individual who overcame addiction through the support of his church family. “Hope Sunday” aims to reach out to the faith community and provide a deeper understanding of addiction, the impact on families, and the influence individuals and churches can have in combating this disease.
