Minnesota Recovery Connection is proud to be a 2021 National Recovery Month planning partner!

Now in its 32nd year, NATIONAL RECOVERY MONTH is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.
