2014 National Recovery Month Tool Kits Now Available

The 2014 National Recovery Month Toolkit highlights the theme “Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out.” The theme encourages people to openly discuss — or speak up about — mental and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery. This 25th annual observance also promotes ways first responders, faith leaders, youth and young adults, and policymakers can recognize these issues and intervene — or reach out to help others, as well as themselves. As with past toolkits, you will find resources and tools for working with the media, planning and promoting a Recovery Month event, targeted outreach materials, and current and updated fast facts, resource listings, and information on commonly misused drugs and mental health disorders. The 2014 toolkit is available online to view or download in English and in Spanish.
