Dear SPIRIT Community, 

Established in 1989 by SAMHSA, National Recovery Month is dedicated to celebrating the journey of recovery, promoting evidence-based treatment approaches, and acknowledging the strength of those in or seeking recovery from mental and/or substance use disorders. 

National Recovery Month: Celebrating Progress and Unity 

National Recovery Month is a time we can come together to support and elevate the evidencebased treatment methods and community driven approaches that help make recovery possible. In particular, this month we honor the resilience and strength of our recovery community and recognize the invaluable role that service providers, peers, loved ones, and our local communities have in supporting diverse forms of recovery. 

Our Shared Commitment to Recovery and Vision for the Future 

At SPIRIT, our shared commitment to recovery from psychosis goes hand in hand with our vision for the future. Our collective efforts aim to create a profound impact on the lives of individuals, families, and communities affected by mental health and substance use conditions, and together, we are dedicated to fostering inclusivity, equity, and unwavering support for recovery.
