Recovery Month is a reminder that healing is not only possible but achievable. It's a time to stand united, offering compassion, understanding, and unwavering support to one another. To seize upon the opportunity to celebrate recovery, we share

  1. Celebrate Milestones: Whether in person or virtually, share recovery milestones, whether it’s a day, a week, a month, or year, every step forward is a victory worth celebrating.
  2. Mindfulness Focus on Gratitude: Center yourself and call to mind all the people, events, and steps towards recovery effected by you and your loved ones in the direction of recovery and hold space in your mind to honor and revere those moments.
  3. Outdoor Activities: Fresh air and physical activity such as a hike, nature walk or picnic that cultivates a positive stepping stone on the path to recovery boosts mood and overall well being.
  4. Artistic Expression: Explore your creative side with art, music or writing to express your experiences through artistic mediums as a form of healing, self-discovery and continued healing within recovery.
  5. Learn: Access articles, videos, and books that provide information about addiction, recovery strategies and growth. 
  6. Community Support Circles: Connect with others who understand the journey, share insights, and provide encouragement. That includes attending a meeting, workshop or webinars in recovery to gain insight, coping strategies and hear success stories.
  7. Listen and Share: Share your personal story of triumph or listen to others who have bravely shared their experiences to inspire hope and foster connection within your community.
  8. Be Kind: Kindness can make a meaningful impact on someone’s journey.

Additional Recovery Resources





For those finding their way to recovery, here are 10 tips to get started on the Road to Recovery:

  1. Acknowledge the issue. The fact that you are here, reading this is a big step to recognize and accept that addiction is affecting your life and those around you.
  2. Educate yourself on your addiction and triggers: learn about the addiction or challenge that is in your life.
  3. Give yourself permission to speak to a professional: reach out to a qualified therapist, counselor or addiction specialist hat can supply personalized guidance. Often this covered by insurance and there are several affordable options on line, virtual or by telehealth.
  4. Attend Support Meetings: This can be online/virtual or in person and to your comfort level (camera off or on, just listening and pass or not pass on speaking). Attending meetings provides connection, understanding and knowledge that you are not alone. 
  5. Build a Support System that fits for you: surround yourself with supportive and understanding people that respect your goals. These people can include, family, friends, mentors, support groups, members of the community that can provide encouragement, accountability and assistance when needed.
  6. Set clear attainable/sustainable goals: define what you want to achieve with clear objectives in the right direction that are reasonable and motivating.
  7. Create a daily, structured routine that provides stability, includes mindful self-care of nutritious meals and physical activity and reduces the likelihood of triggers or relapse .
  8. Plan for triggering encounters and relapse: recognize triggering situations, people, or emotions and anticipate/plan for those moments to manage challenging events or environments. If this….then that…
  9. Develop coping mechanisms: Build a tool box of healthy coping strategies or mechanisms to replace harmful habits like drinking water, going for a walk, meditating, writing a letter of thanks/kindness to a person that has touched your life.
  10. Celebrate victories, even small ones. Small victories build to big victories. Every step in the right direction, the next right move, directs you to the goals you have set for yourself.
