September is also known as Recovery Month. It celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate health improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease. The observance in September brings to light a positive message. The message is clear in that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover!
