National Recovery Month is held every September to increase awareness and to celebrate successes of those in recovery. It’s an ongoing effort to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and/or substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives. Today’s Forum is one of Plymouth’s efforts to participate in this yearly National Recovery Month Celebration, now in its 27th year.
