September is Recovery Month

There is a blog called Subdural Flow. I found this post there about September being designated Recovery Month.

"SAMHSA/CSAT (the government agency on substance abuse and mental health) sponsors Recovery Month, which celebrates recovery, highlights the benefits of treatment, and educates the public on recovery and treatment options.

Upcoming events for your area can be found by putting in your zip code here. On September 12 there will a human bridge of recovery across the Brooklyn Bridge. Already 10,000 people have signed up!"

Today my hubby is 9 years clean and sober. I have been working the twelve steps in a codependents anonymous program for 2 1/2 years. We know many people in recovery who are working programs to become and remain healthy. It isn't simply a matter of attending a meeting and getting to know other people in recovery. It takes hard, consistent work.

It is worth every ounce of energy and every tear of frustration and all the sweat of hard work.
