Real People, Real Recovery

From Tiffany Matthews (Health Services): On Monday, September 29, Phoenix House Keene Center and the Keene State College Center for Health and Wellness will sponsor “Real People, Real Recovery” in celebration of the nineteenth annual National Recovery Month nationwide.

This event will take place at Keene State College in the Mabel Brown Room from 6 to 8 p.m., and will provide an opportunity for the public to hear stories of experience, strength, and hope from community members who have been affected by addiction and have made progress towards long-term recovery. Community members, people in recovery, parents, policy makers, teachers, students, and all whose lives may have been touched by addiction are invited to participate.

The event will include a variety of speakers from the local area sharing their stories of recovery and recounting how community agencies in the Monadnock Region have supported them in achieving long-term abstinence from drugs and alcohol. Community social-service agencies will also be attending and providing educational materials about their services and volunteer opportunities.

For the 22.6 million people in the United States who suffer from substance-use disorders, asking for help and finding treatment is essential to getting back to a healthy, fulfilling life through recovery. Recovery Month is a nationwide celebration of people in long-term recovery from substance-use disorders and their families, and is supported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
