SEPTEMBER IS RECOVERY MONTH

September is National Recovery Month. We celebrate those who are in recovery, we hope for those who are trying to be in recovery, and we beseech those who are in denial to see their condition. Melanie Dallas who is a licensed professional counselor says, "What’s most important to know about recovery is that it is always possible. People can and do recover from mental illness, addiction or both, and live healthy, independent and productive lives in recovery. If you’re struggling with mental illness or addiction, don’t wait to get help. The sooner you begin treatment, the sooner you can find hope and recovery."

For those of you who live in a home with a parent, brother or sister who suffer from substance use disorder be good to yourself seek help for yourself. How do you talk to such a person? What can you do to make your life bearable? Go to Alateen, to In the Rooms. Do it on line or go in person to meet others in such a group.
