September is National Recovery Month!

September 6, 2023

National Recovery Month (Recovery Month), which started in 1989, is a national observance held every September to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the nation’s strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and communities who make recovery in all its forms possible. During Recovery Month, join SAMHSA in spreading the word about the importance of acceptance and support during recovery. Together, we can make a difference.


On September 19th, the New England PTTC program will host the webinar: A Conversation with Carolyn Delaney and Alison Jones Webb: The Impact of Recovery Allies in Our Communities and Prevention Work. For this webinar, our Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator, Sarah Johnson, will interview Alison and Carolyn, to learn about the impact recovery allies working in the prevention field can have in our communities.

The New England PTTC just recently launched products from our 2023 Research and Design Fellowship Program. The 2023 R.A.D. Fellowship Program consisted of six fellows, one from each of the New England states, engaged in a seven-month, independent study program to develop a practical tool or resource to address root causes of substance use disorder. Our R.A.D. Fellows created some great resources, many of which connect to recovery. Find those resources and a link to a recording of the produce launch symposium at this link:
