September is National Recovery Month in King County

Each September, we recognize and celebrate National Recovery Month. This year, the theme is “Recovery is for Everyone: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community.” Now in its 32nd year, Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery and spreads a message of hope to individuals, families, and communities. It is also a moment to thank the peers and behavioral health workers who make recovery possible for so many.
