National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) increases awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders and encourages individuals in need of treatment and recovery services to seek help. Recovery Month celebrates individuals living their lives in recovery and recognizes the dedicated workers who provide the prevention, treatment, and recovery support services that make it possible.

At Michael Ash & Associates, one of our specialties is helping clients manage substance use disorders. As licensed clinical social workers (LCSW) and therapists, we are dedicated to helping individuals and families live their most fulfilling lives. We are so proud to participate in National Recovery Month.


This year’s Recovery Month theme focuses on urban communities, health care providers, members of the media, and policymakers, highlighting the various entities that support recovery within our society. The theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Home, Purpose, and Community,” explores how integrated care, a strong community, sense of purpose, and leadership contributes to effective treatments that sustain the recovery of persons with mental and substance use disorders.

The 2018 observance also aims to increase awareness and encourages audiences to take advantage of the increased dialogue around the nation’s behavioral health needs and the increased emphasis on tackling our nation’s opioid crisis.
