The theme for this year’s recovery month is: "Join the Voices of Recovery: Together on Pathways to Wellness." That theme highlights two ideas—that individuals are not alone on the journey toward recovery and that there are many paths to recovery, including medical care and other professional treatment, group support, and self-help (SAMHSA, 2013).
In an effort to join SAMHSA’s initiative on recovery; specifically, recovery month, the National Hispanic and Latino ATTC will be sharing excerpts of testimonies from Hispanics and Latinos in recovery through its webpage. The purpose of this activity is to personalize the Hispanic and Latino experience of recovery and connect people from different perspectives with this experience.
Excerpts will be posted through the month of September on the webpage where visitors may easily access them (http://www.attcnetwork.org/hispaniclatino)
