‘Recovery Month’ Highlights Substance Abuse Programs


Each September National Alcohol and Drug Addition Recovery Month (Recovery Month) is observed. This year’s theme is Join the Voices for Recovery: Build a Stronger, Healthier Community and is intended to inform people that assistance for alcohol and drug use disorders is available.

           

In 2004, an estimated 23.5 million people needed treatment for alcohol or drug use problems. However, only 2.3 million actually received treatment at a specialty facility. The American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Substance Abuse works with other ABA entities to recommend, develop, and promote practices and policies supporting prevention, treatment and education about substance abuse.

           

Each year the committee partners with the US Dept. of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration to observe Recovery Month. Nearly 30 Recovery Month community events are planned for 2006. These events will examine key treatment and recovery-related issues in local communities throughout the country.

           

To find out what is planned in your area, go to http://www.recoverymonth.gov/.

 

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
