Celebrating the Recovery Month: My Recovery Challenge Video

National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) (http://www.recoverymonth.gov) 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. The observance’s main focus is to laud the gains made by those in recovery from these conditions, just as we would those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover. SAMHSA’s National Helpline – 1-800-662 HELP-4357. (Source http://www.recoverymonth.gov/about-recovery-month.aspx).

Recovery Month 2014Recovery is possible for all of us! But many people in recovery do not openly talk about it due to the huge stigma that is associated with alcoholism and/or drug addiction. But if no one knows that we do recover how would anyone be able to find recovery themselves!? This is the time when all of us in recovery need to spread the word that recovery is possible and it is NOT shameful! Talking about it openly brings much-needed hope and inspiration to the folks who are seeking to recover.

As part of the recovery month I have decided to celebrate by taking the Sober Mommies Recovery Challenge and sharing my journey. Click on the video link below to watch. Please share the video and help spread the word – use tags #SoberMommiesRC, #RecoveryChallenge and #RecoveryMonth.
