Your Guide to This Year’s Local & Virtual Events
The beginning of September marked the start of National Recovery Month, a nationwide holiday developed to celebrate those in recovery from addiction and honor those who lost their lives to substance abuse and dependence. At The Plymouth House we celebrate Recovery Month all September long, bringing in speakers to share their experience, strength and hope and encouraging our guests to participate in a range of recovery-related group workshops, events and activities. Our New Hampshire treatment center is in close proximity to a variety of other Recovery Month events happening throughout local communities, and we have compiled a list of local Recovery Month events for those in recovery and for their loved ones to take advantage of. To learn more about the nationwide celebration and effort to raise awareness, contact us today. If you or someone you love is in need of recovery resources, we are available to help 24/7 — simply contact us over the phone or directly through our website. We are available to answer any questions you have about the admissions process, the treatment process and how to get started on the road to recovery.
National Recovery Month 2021
In 1989, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) developed National Recovery Month as a way to honor those lost to addiction, celebrate those in recovery and raise general awareness about addiction and recovery as a whole. Every year SAMHSA has chosen a theme for National Recovery Month and created a comprehensive toolkit for recovery organizations to utilize. Last year, the federal government placed the holiday in the hands of Faces & Voices of Recovery, an organization “dedicated to organizing and mobilizing the over 23 million Americans in recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs, our families, friends and allies into recovery community organizations and networks, to promote the right and resources to recover through advocacy, education and demonstrating the power and proof of long-term recovery.”
The theme of the 32nd annual Recovery Month celebration is “Recovery is for Everybody: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community.” If you have overcome an addictive disorder, if you know someone who has, or if you are currently struggling with addiction and looking for a way out, we encourage you to participate in at least one of the online or in-person events we have listed below. If you would like to learn more about the national holiday or about the treatment services we provide, contact us today.

What is the Significance of This Year’s Theme?
Recovery is for Everyone is a theme which will inevitably hit home for a lot of people. Many people mistakenly believe that those who struggle with addiction are in low-income brackets, come from tumultuous or abusive backgrounds, and have very few opportunities in life. The truth is, substance dependence can happen to anyone. A professional athlete who was prescribed an opioid painkiller for a sports injury. A highly esteemed surgeon who turned to stimulant drugs in order to fulfill his demanding job-related obligations. Addiction can happen to anyone; therefore recovery is for everyone. At The Plymouth house we treat people of all ages and walks of life, from college students to CEOs. To learn more about our recovery program, contact us today.

One of the fundamental components of our recovery program is recreational therapy, an evidence-based recovery method focused on healing through a variety of hands-on activities. We encourage our guests to take advantage of the Recovery Month activities in New Hampshire as part of their recreational therapy program. They build a sense of community as they learn how to have fun in sobriety. We also encourage our alumni to take part in as many activities and events as they can, whether in-person or online.
