This September, join the Council in recognizing National Recovery Month. This observance celebrates the successes of those confronting mental illness or substance use disorder and raises awareness about treatment. Mental illness and substance use disorder can be both causes and results of homelessness, and people without homes are less likely to have access to adequate treatment or recovery services.
Find out how you can promote awareness at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Learn more about harm reduction programs and practices as they relate to opioid addiction in our action agenda.
