Recovery Month Around the Corner

National Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Month is fast approaching. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment has designated the month of September to celebrate recovery.
In its 14th annual observance, this year’s theme for National Recovery Month is "Join the Voices for Recovery: Celebrating Health." Information about the occasion, an electronic Recovery Month promotional kit and lists of events being held in each state to celebrate lives saved can be found at www.recoverymonth.gov.
One event listed is from Narconon Arrowhead, which is one of the largest private residential rehabilitation and education centers in the nation. Narconon Arrowhead is a non-traditional program that services addicted individuals from all over the United States and achieves an extremely high success rate for recovery by using the drug-free methodology developed by American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.
Featured in last year’s Recovery Month webcast highlight of events around the country, this year’s event hosted by Narconon Arrowhead includes many other organizations in support of drug-free communities and the attendance is expected to be around 2,000 total participants, or more than double that of last year’s. The theme of this event is “A Community That Pulls Together Can Make a Better Society For All.”
“Recovery Month encompasses more than just substance abuse treatment and prevention,” remarks Luke Catton, President of Narconon Arrowhead, “Nearly every sector of society is affected by it and therefore, must work together if it is going to be stamped out of existence.”
“In addition,” continues Catton, “we must focus resources on those programs that get proven results with full rehabilitation and effective prevention instead of simply giving money to the latest trends in pharmacotherapy. Given the right tools and education, drug addiction can be overcome, permanently.”
