Recognizing National Recovery Month

September is National Recovery Month. This national observance serves to support the recovery community and promote new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices. It is also a time to celebrate and honor those in recovery and the strides they make every day.

The Partnership for a Drug-Free New Jersey (PDFNJ) recognizes and honors those in recovery and the many prevention, treatment and recovery programs and services throughout New Jersey and the nation. We honor their successes this month and all year long.

It is equally important to raise awareness and educate the public about recovery, how it works and why.  PDFNJ will be highlighting National Recovery Month in the next Knock Out Opioid Abuse Day Learning Series Webinar being held tomorrow, September 8 at 11 a.m.

Hear from speakers such as Mary Beth O’Connor, who has been sober since 1994. Mary Beth attended Berkeley Law, and recently retired from her position as a federal administrative law judge. Her history and recovery are chronicled in her memoir, “From Junkie to Judge: One Woman’s Triumph Over Trauma and Addiction.”

I hope that you will join us for this very important webinar. To register, please click here.

Additionally, a Learning Series Webinar in July highlighted the role of medication assisted treatment as means of recovery in the fight against the opioid crisis. In case you missed it, it is available to view here.
