  • September is National Recovery Month.

    In its 25th year, Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover. “Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out,” encourages people to openly speak up about mental and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery.

    Find out more about Recovery Month and upcoming events in your community.

    TASC is a National Recovery Month Planning Partner.
