The mission of SOS Recovery Community Organization is to reduce stigma and harm associated with substance use and misuse by providing safe space and peer based supports for people in all stages of recovery.
SOS Recovery Community Organization envisions a world where recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs is possible and widely embraced through low-barrier access to inclusive and respectful support, and where all who seek long-term recovery have access to the care and resources they need to achieve their self-defined goals.
About the Event:
As September is National Recovery Month, this year’s event will be held Saturday, September 14th from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Henry Law Park in Dover. The message of the Recovery Rally is one of hope – to let people know there is hope, to bring together people who have been affected by addiction and to celebrate recovery. The day will feature inspirational speakers, music and a variety of other family friendly activities, The Rally will also feature various exhibitors so that people can learn more about the numerous prevention, treatment and recovery support programs in our community.
Each September, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) ([login to view URL]), within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) (https://www.hhs.
gov/), sponsors National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) [login to view URL]). This observance celebrates the millions
of Americans who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders, reminding us that treatment is effective and that people can and do recover. It also serves to help reduce the stigma and misconceptions that cloud
public understanding of mental and substance use disorders, potentially discouraging others from seeking help. The 2019 Recovery Month
theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger,” emphasizes the need to share resources and build networks across the country to support the many paths to recovery—engaging passionate community members along the way. It reminds us that mental and substance use disorders afect all
of us and that we are all part of the solution. The Recovery Month observance will highlight inspiring stories to help thousands of people from all walks of life fnd the path to hope, health, and overall wellness.
During the 30th anniversary of Recovery Month, communities across the nation will refect on their positive strides and their plans to make recovery support services more accessible so people can live meaningful and productive lives. Over the years, recoveryoriented organizations have also played an
essential role in states, cities, towns, and neighborhoods to help countless people start and sustain their recovery.
The 2019 observance underscores the importance of relying on one another,
recognizing what brings us together rather than what drives us apart, and promotes the overall goals of health and well-being for all Americans.
Mental and substance use disorders have left their mark on every American in one way or another. They affect individuals from all walks of life—and community members must band together to show that recovery is possible for
everyone. Mental and substance use disorders do not come from outside of the community.
They emerge from within it. Communities, therefore, have a central role in helping address their impact.
