Planning Partners

The Planning Partners help promote and plan Recovery Month, disseminate materials, and sponsor events across the country.

The Planning Partners are involved in planning National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) activities in conjunction with the SAMHSA Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and with support from the SAMHSA Center for Mental Health Services.

Currently, the Planning Partners are comprised of more than 300 federal, state, and local government entities, as well as nonprofit organizations and associations affiliated with prevention, treatment, and recovery of mental and/or substance use disorders.

You are encouraged to involve the national organizations and local affiliates or chapters in your state and ask them to collaborate with your organization on Recovery Month planning. You can find local affiliates or chapters by contacting the national organizations directly.

You can also download the Directory of Single State Substance Abuse Agencies – 2016 (PDF | 191 KB), which is a list of state offices that provide local information and guidance about substance use and/or mental disorders.
