The Recovery Month Toolkit Webinar has been rescheduled to August 16, 2012, at 1:30 pm Eastern time. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope that you will join us on August 16th to discuss how best to use SAMHSA's Recovery Month Toolkit to educate your community about ways to support recovery efforts.
For the 23rd year, SAMHSA designated September Recovery Month to promote the message the prevention works, treatment is effective and people recover. This year's Recovery Month theme is "Join the Voices for Recovery: It's Worth It." The theme emphasizes the benefits of preventing and overcoming mental and/or substance use disorders and the importance of involving everyone in these efforts.
In order to educate communities about treatment and living in recovery, SAMHSA created a Recovery Month toolkit. The toolkit provides tips for planning Recovery Month events and includes promotional and educational materials. Reclaiming Futures is excited to host a webinar featuring Ivette Torres of CSAT to discuss how you can best use the toolkit to plan your own Recovery Month events.
