September is Recovery Month.

Now in its 27th year, Recovery Month highlights the achievements of individuals who have reclaimed their lives in long-term recovery and commends the treatment providers who make recovery possible.

In this month’s edition of #RBRoundTable, join us (@RecoveryBrands) for an open discussion on this year’s Recovery Month theme: “Join the Voices for Recovery: Our Families, Our Stories, Our Recovery.” This special edition chat will feature guest panelists from our Pro Talk & Pro Corner platforms: Keith McAdam, Tori Utley, Barry Lessin, Candace Plattor, Mike Pond, Dr. Stephen Grinstead, Helaina Hovitz, Katherine Schreiber, and Ian McLoone.
Here’s a sneak peek of the questions:

Q1: Addiction is often a silent disease that carries an adverse social stigma. Why is this?

Q2: How does fear hold us back from reaching out for help?

Q3: What does it mean to ‘give recovery a voice’?

Q4: How do personal stories help to eradicate the stigma & discrimination surrounding addiction?

Q5: How can family and friends make a difference in the life of someone needing treatment or in recovery?

Q6: As a society, what can we do to create environments that promote acceptance & understanding of addiction and recovery?

Q7: How do awareness events like @RecoveryMonth help shape public attitudes surrounding mental and/or substance use disorders?
