Recovery Month by Chris Snyder, program coordinator Recover Alaska

The air is getting cooler, the leaves are starting to turn, and the last bit of eternal sunshine is slowly fading. Summer is coming to a close, but it is capped off by a nationwide celebration--a celebration of the gains by those in recovery.

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 disorders to live a healthy and rewarding life. At Recover Alaska, a coalition with the goal of addressing the harm caused by excessive alcohol consumption, we strive to spread awareness of this month and share individuals success stories of their road to recovery.

September is filled with many recovery related events around the state of Alaska, and one that we are most proud of is the upcoming Hangover Free Brunch held by Recover Alaska on September 26th at 9:30am. In typical 2020 fashion, this event will be held virtually and free registration can be found on our Facebook event .

The brunch is FILLED with an action packed schedule that includes yoga, zero-proof cocktails, music and great conversations from our lineup of local experts. Most importantly, this event is a celebration of Alaskans on their road to recovery.

Please see the flyer below for a full schedule of the Hangover Free Brunch, and make sure to register on Eventbrite found on our Facebook event page for the latest information on our Brunch. We look forward to having you attend and participate. Happy Recovery Month!
