National Substance Abuse Disorders Recovery Month

"Prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover." – SAMHSA

National Recovery Month is observed every September to remind Americans that there is hope for those struggling with a substance use disorder. Through treatment, resources, and services, individuals who seek help can live long-term sober and healthy lives.

Here are some resources to help you learn, understand, and access support for your journey or a loved one's road to recovery.

  1. Learn about the process of recovery. Recovery from alcohol and other drugs not only includes quitting substance use but also adopting a healthy lifestyle.
  2. Take an anonymous Alcohol Use Self-Assessment.
  3. Access resources at Vanderbilt such as the Recovery Support Services of Work/Life Connections-EAP.

If you or a family member is struggling with substance use, call 615-936-1327 to schedule a confidential appointment with one of our EAP Counselors.
