Recovery Month Toolkit

Recovery Month provides a toolkit with tips and resources to plan events, distribute information, and promote recovery efforts.

Each year, Recovery Month creates a toolkit to help individuals and organizations increase awareness of the power of recovery. The kit provides tips and resources for planning Recovery Month events and distributing information in communities across the nation.

The toolkit contains four sections:

Targeted Outreach – Offers audience-specific information about the benefits of recovery, the effectiveness of treatment, and tips to overcome challenges during the recovery process.

Media Outreach – Provides instructions to plan and promote Recovery Month activities and events, as well as templates to customize and send to local and online media outlets.

Resources – Provides resources to help plan and prepare for Recovery Month events, including tips to cultivate partnerships with other organizations.

Join the Voices for Recovery – Presents a snapshot of individuals on different recovery pathways speaking up and reaching out to openly discuss mental and/or substance use disorders.
