Bienvenido a Mes de la Recuperación

Septiembre es el Mes de la Recuperación

El Mes de la Recuperación promueve los beneficios sociales de la prevención, el tratamiento, y la recuperación del uso de sustancias y de los desórdenes mentales, celebra a las personas en recuperación, reconoce las contribuciones de los proveedores de tratamiento y servicios, y promueve el mensaje que la recuperación, en todas sus formas, es posible. El Mes de la Recuperación esparce el mensaje que la salud de la conducta es esencial para la salud en general, que la prevención funciona, el tratamiento es efectivo y las personas se recuperan.
