Save the Date: National Recovery Month Walk – September 7, 2023
This September marks the 34th year of National Recovery Month. The goal of National Recovery Month is to raise awareness that hope and healing from mental health and substance use problems are real and possible. It highlights the availability of evidence-based treatment and recovery support services, celebrates the nation’s strong recovery community, recognizes the commitment of service providers and communities that make recovery possible, and demonstrates the national recovery community’s dedication. This year’s theme is “Hope is Real, Recovery is Real,” and we are delighted to announce the Walk for Recovery!
Come join the recovery movement at Union Station in Washington, D.C., on September 7, 2023. Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use Miriam E. Delphin-Rittmon, Ph.D., will lead SAMHSA and other federal agencies, recovery communities, and organizations on a one-hour-long walk beginning at 2:30 p.m. and finishing at 3:30 p.m. at the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial in front of the Capitol.
There is no cost to register for the walk; however, we do ask that you register for the walk here: SAMHSA Walk for Recovery.
