National Recovery Month – 2022


National Recovery Month, which started in 1989, is a national observance held every September to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the nation’s strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and communities who make recovery in all its forms possible.

Governors are at the forefront of measures to prevent overdoses and the treatment of substance use disorders—a major public health and safety crisis affecting communities across the country. Here are some recent publications highlighting work from Governors and other state leaders:
