National Recovery Month

September is National Recovery Month, and we want to share the message that recovery is real. Throughout the month, RAD is holding events to celebrate the gains made by those in recovery and educate our community on substance use treatments and mental health services.

Together we can break the stigma and enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives!
