We’re officially a week into National Recovery Month 2021, a 30-day event organized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to promote education and awareness toward addiction, de-stigmatize substance use disorder and celebrate the efforts and achievements of the recovery community. This year, there are more ways than ever to get involved. Learn some of the ways you can celebrate National Recovery Month and support your friend or loved one.

Why Celebrate National Recovery Month?

This year’s National Recovery Month theme of “Recovery Is for Everyone” has never been more appropriate. In a year when overdoses reached record highs, topping 93,000 for the first time in the history of the United States, it’s become glaringly apparent that addiction recovery is everyone’s concern, whether or not they’re directly affected by drugs or alcohol.

People in recovery, no matter how long they’ve been clean, need support and resources on every level, whether it’s in the doctor’s office, at home, at work or anywhere else. National Recovery Month allows us to support our family, friends, colleagues, neighbors and fellow community members who have made the brave, difficult and necessary choice of reclaiming their lives from drugs or alcohol.

What Are Some Ways I Can Celebrate National Recovery Month?

SAMHSA provides multiple ways to get involved and show your support during National Recovery Month, whether it’s in-person, online through social media:

• View the SAMHSA Events Calendar to Participate
• Create and Promote Your Own Recovery Event
• Share and Upload Your Images
• Create and Share Your Own Proclamation

You can download the Recovery Month toolkit to better educate yourself about the disease of addiction and how to help in your community every day of the year. The toolkit provides insights on the Recovery Month mission and objectives, ways to get involved, insights on how to share on how to effectively and tactfully share on social media and graphic assets to easily download and share.

Recovery Unplugged Urges All to Celebrate National Recovery Month

Recovery Unplugged believes that everyone in recovery deserves the support of friends, family, colleagues and medical care providers as they go through their journey, and that this support is necessary to long-term success. Even if you don’t think you know someone who is in recovery, you may encounter someone who is going through the journey in private. These people deserve your support and your validation. Get involved in National Recovery Month starting today.
