National Recovery Month

Did you know?

  • September 5 – 11 is National Suicide Prevention Week.
  • September is Pain Awareness Month. Many opioid addictions begin with treatment for pain. Be aware of what you and loved ones are prescribed and never share medications with others.
  • September is also National Recovery Month. Remember that addiction is a disease, not a moral failing. Be willing to step up and be there to help those struggling to break the cycle and to support those in recovery.
  • Are you ready for Red Wolves Football! Come visit us at the Prevention Booth inside the stadium on the concourse! We have lots of free goodies and informational brochures to browse while you wait for kickoff.
