EVERYONE IS WELCOME

Join us as we prepare for

National Recovery Month in September!

In 1989, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA) launched National Recovery Month to increase awareness surrounding mental health and substance abuse. At the same time, they wanted to celebrate the success stories to illustrate that living in recovery is possible.

Training: Substances of Abuse 101

When: Wednesday, September 28 from 5-6 PM

Where: Virtual via Zoom

Objectives:

  • Recognize commonly misused substances

  • Recognize how substances impact the body and brain

  • Understand the risk factors of a Substance Use Disorder

When we treat those with substance use disorder with respect, we can help stop the stigma surrounding addiction. So people get the help they deserve. See the person. Not the addiction. For more information visit Your Life Iowa.

YOUTH GROUPS

High school youth work on many initiatives to prevent and end alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use. Their efforts—such as Red Ribbon Week, the Great American Smokeout, Drug Facts Week, Through with Chew Week, and Kick Butts Day—promote awareness and education among their peers and community.
