Recovery Month Coming to an End

The month of September is Recovery month, it may be coming to end, but, there is still plenty of recovery related events that addicts can involve themselves with. There are always events taking place in your local community that you can easily find out about by using the "Events by State" tracker on the Recovery Month website. Recovery has to do with community and the better connected one is with their community the greater chance for long term recovery.

The Recovery Month website has created a specialized kit that can help you with hosting your own recovery event any time of year; they also have: podcasts, research studies, stories of recovery, and customizable public service announcements for television. Obviously, some recovering addicts live in places that Recovery Month events are not being held and traveling to the events is unaffordable. Fortunately, there is a host of recovery related social networks that one can participate in, like Rally for Recovery! Online, whose visitors currently celebrating over 10,000 years of recovery; make Twitter updates, share your story, scan photos and videos from events that you have attended.

Everyone who has struggled with addiction in the past is obligated to give back to the community which helped save their life - you can never do too much. The new tools that are available have the power to aid one's recovery and help everyone stay connected no matter where they are in the world. Help yourself by helping other people.... Paying it forward is how the program of recovery has had continued success since 1935 and how it will continual to save lives in the future.

Rally for Recovery! Online is sponsored by Faces & Voices of Recovery, on Sept. 16 they released a DVD, "Our Stories Have Power", watch the preview below:
