National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.
There are millions of Americans whose lives have been transformed through recovery. Since these successes often go unnoticed by the broader population, Recovery Month provides a vehicle for everyone to celebrate these accomplishments. Each September, tens of thousands of prevention, treatment, and recovery programs and facilities around the country celebrate Recovery Month. They speak about the gains made by those in recovery and share their success stories with their neighbors, friends, and colleagues. In doing so, everyone helps to increase awareness and furthers a greater understanding about the diseases of mental and substance use disorders.
Guest House offers continuous treatment services to priests, women religious, deacons and seminarians. Our care has been able to continue, uninterrupted and safe for our clients and staff, as our dedication to these “wounded healers” is primary to our mission, since 1956. We celebrate the recovery of each clergy or religious, and continue to be grateful for the groundwork afforded by National Recovery Month.
