The Why Recovery PSA is a Web-only PSA that you can view here and post on your website or share in social media via the Recovery Month YouTube page.
View the Spanish version.

PSAs are powerful tools for promoting that prevention works, treatment is effective, and recovery is possible. Broadcasters are invited to request copies of the Television and Radio PSAs. To make your request, e-mail or call (617) 520-2576. Please specify whether you would like radio and/or television PSAs. If radio, please specify if you would like the English and/or Spanish versions. If you would like the television PSAs, please specify if you would like VHS or Beta, the length (:15 seconds and/or :30 seconds), the language (English and/or Spanish) and whether you want an open-ended or SAMHSA-tagged PSA. Open-ended PSAs allow organizations to put their own contact information at the end of the PSA. You can also use the Web PSA on your website, Facebook page, or YouTube page. To share it, go to the Recovery Month YouTube page and share it as an embedded video.
