With an eye toward celebrating the benefits of recovery from substance use disorders and the mental health issues that often accompany them, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval has issued an official proclamation to support SAMSHA’s National Recovery Month initiative. Joining forces with state and federal drug awareness agencies, Sandoval’s proclamation encourages Nevada residents to participate in educational and social activities promoting recovery. In acknowledging the heavy physical, mental and emotional price of alcoholism and drug use on families, Sandoval is committed to calling attention to the hope of restored health and wellbeing in recovery. It applauds those who seek preventative measures and who take the courageous step of seeking help when they recognize the symptoms of these illnesses.
Raising Awareness Erases Stigma And Supports Treatment
By designating September as National Recovery Month, SAMSHA and other government officials, including Sandoval, hope to raise awareness by calling attention to the prevention, treatment, and recovery resources that are available throughout the nation. As one of the primary resources, our highly acclaimed Las Vegas Recovery Center is proud to support National Recovery Month. We join SAMSHA and Sandoval in creating positive perception of those in recovery. When our clients continue to use what they have learned here and have a desire to maintain long-term recovery, they become active, contributing members of their communities. Success in recovery has replaced the guilt and shame they experienced with their disorders. National Recovery Month provides many excellent opportunities to share that good news. Families, friends, and health care providers all play a part in supporting those who suffer from substance use and mental health disorders, and now is the time to focus on the importance of that teamwork. By taking part in National Recovery Month’s recreational activities and educational opportunities at our treatment center and at other locations throughout the city and state, people of Nevada can become a strong force against addiction.
