What is National Recovery Month?

What is National Recovery Month? - The Bergand Group

National Recovery Month, happening now, is “a national observance that educates Americans on the fact that addiction treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.” Since mental health issues and addiction carry such a stigma, National Recovery Month was put into place to help break just that. While many people feel comfortable seeking treatment for other health ailments, many people suffering from mental health issues and addiction go untreated due to the stigma associated with their disorder. Why should someone seek treatment for asthma, migraines and diabetes, but not addiction, anxiety or depression? National Recovery Month urges those suffering to not only seek treatment, but to believe that a full, healthy recovery is available for everyone.

Celebrating the success of those who have worked up the courage to seek help is another way that National Recovery Month helps break the stigma of addiction. By hearing real-life stories about addiction and mental health issues, those who are suffering can feel truly understood. Considering that the stigma surrounding mental health issues and addiction can lead people to believe that these issues only affect a small population, National Recovery Month urges people who have faced these hardships to break that stigma. Speaking out about these struggles “reinforces the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover.” Sometimes that can be the all someone needs to hear in order to seek treatment for themselves.

Joining together to spread the word about National Recovery Month will help support those in, and in need of, recovery. By showing your support, you will help break the stigma. If you, or someone you know, is suffering from mental health issues or addiction, get in touch with The Bergand Group. As Maryland’s leading addiction recovery center, The Bergand Group offers care to those with mental health issues and addiction.
