FAVOR UK are involved in planning for International Recovery Month, which takes place every September.
Recovery Month is held to increase awareness, challenge stigma, and celebrate the success of those in recovery from all addictive behaviours.
What is Recovery Month?
Now in its 32nd year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease.
Each September, Recovery Month works to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible.
Organising an event for Recovery Month is an ideal way to celebrate the achievements of the recovery community. Events bring people together to share real life experiences of the power of recovery.
