September Is Recovery Month: SAMHSA Resources


SAMHSA aims to increase public awareness surrounding mental health and addiction recovery during Recovery Month. In the years since Recovery Month launched, SAMHSA has timed announcements of initiatives and grant funding during Recovery Month, while collaborating with private and public entities to celebrate individuals during their long-term recoveries.

In celebration of Recovery Month, SAMHSA’s Office of Recovery will release findings from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) that provide a more in-depth examination of the prevalence of recovery based on self-reports among Americans and what helps people to recover from their mental health and substance use conditions. Results will also be shared on how Americans in recovery reported they fared during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the nation faces a continued mental health crisis and an overdose epidemic, these findings are important to help individuals, families, and communities heal and find hope.
