Celebrating National Recovery Month

To Celebrate September's National Recovery Month, Inspirations Teen Rehab exhibited at the 5th Annual “Harvesting The Voices of Recovery; An Autumn Family Festival” on September 17, 2011 in Palm Beach County.

National Recovery Month is an Annual Event sponsored by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) to promote the societal benefits of treatment for substance use and mental disorders and to celebrate people in recovery. It also lauds the contributions of treatment providers, and promotes the message that recovery in all its forms is possible. Recovery Month spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.

Helping spread the message of recovery, Inspirations Teen Addiction Treatment resource exhibit booth was available to the community throughout the event. Clinical Director, Dr. Hughes represented Inspirations reporting that approximately over 700 people from the tri-county area attended the Festival.

Hosted by SAMH Consumer Advisory Council in Palm Beach County the event featured “Sarge,” a well-known recovering comedian, exhibitor booths of recovery resources, music, “Recovery’s Got Talent” competition, a Chili cook-off, a Cookie Bake-off, children’s activities and fun for all ages.

As the Recovery Month comes to an end, Inspirations Co-founder Chris Walsh and Karen Corcoran Walsh thanks the staff who were involved in helping to observe this month with outstanding activities.
