About Recovery Day

Utah’s recovery community will join in celebrating National Recovery Month by highlighting four dimensions that support a life in recovery from substance use disorders: health, home, community, and purpose. Recovery Day celebration supports and empowers individuals in recovery and recognizes the contributions of family members, service providers, and allies who come together to raise awareness that together we can recover from addiction by creating hope, healing, and health through many pathways.

Utah Honors Recovery Ambassadors

USARA and the Utah Department of Human Services, Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health are asking for nominations for the 2019 Utah Honors Recovery Ambassadors Awards. If you know of someone who deserves recognition for their contribution to helping people to recover from substance use/addiction please nominate them for this award.

About National Recovery Month

National Recovery Month (Recovery Month), sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live a healthy and rewarding life.

Now in its 30th 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.

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.

The 2019 Recovery Month Theme

The 2019 Recovery Month theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger," emphasizes the need to share resources and build networks across the country that support recovery in all its forms.
