Recovery Month Events to Look Forward To in 2022
September is National Recovery Month, a month full of recognition for addiction and the recovery from substance use disorders. Each year we build up the recovery community, celebrate the accomplishments of those who have or are currently recovering, and share new information and knowledge about treatment and recovery practices.
We are all about recovery here at Family Life Center, and we know the community surrounding recovery is large and capable of helping so many people! To do our part, we offer one-day anger management classes at our Scottsboro office once a month as a way to guide the individuals in our community to build happier and healthier lives. We also have an open-door policy where you can visit any one of our office locations during office hours to find a willing ear and helpful resources.
Our understanding of addiction continues to evolve, and Recovery Month is the perfect time to connect with your local community to learn more. There are many events that happen in and around September that are focused on recovery. Take a look at the list of events occurring in Alabama below. Do you know of an event we missed?
