Green Mountain Retreat supports and promotes National Recovery Month at our drug and alcohol rehab center in NH. During the month of September, National Recovery Month is a time where individuals, organizations, and treatment centers create awareness about drug and alcohol addiction, dependency, and recovery.
National Recovery Month 2019 is sponsored by the Abuse and Mental health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The goal of Recovery Month is to educate Americans on how to avoid addiction or get help for addiction. There are numerous services available in nearly every town across the country. We also designate September as a time to remember those who have fallen to addiction and celebrate those who have overcome dependency.
Overcoming the Stigma of Addiction
One of the most important issues surrounding substance abuse is overcoming the stigma surrounding addiction and treatment. Green Mountain Retreat partners with SAMHSA to remove the stigma so that people can see more clearly to understand the benefits of recovery.
Overcoming an addiction means rising above the false cultural perceptions of both drugs and rehab. Society has a way of glamorizing harmful substances while demonizing or trivializing treatment centers. During the month of September and throughout the year, we make great strides to counter the harmful stigmas created by culture.
New Innovations in Addiction Treatment
Every year, leading treatment specialist and researchers discover new innovations in addiction treatment. As research continues, we learn more about a wide range of methods and approaches to helping clients including:
- Evidence-based treatment
- Holistic treatment
- Individual and group therapies
- Medications for detox and withdrawal symptoms
- Alternative approaches to traditional therapy
- Options for outpatient treatment services
The more we discover about addiction treatment, then the more we can personalize therapy for each individual that seeks substance abuse rehabilitation. During the month of September, addiction treatment professionals and researchers come together to share ideas and research findings. As a result, we have made great strides in the therapy community in helping others get on the road to recovery.
