Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers Raises Awareness for National Recovery Month
Mentor, OH, September 9, 2019: Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers, Inc., an area leader in the treatment of substance use disorders, is proud to participate in National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) which 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. The 2019 Recovery Month theme is “Join the Voices for Recovery: Together We Are Stronger.”
This month, Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers celebrates the 30th anniversary of Recovery Month by having treatment groups paint rocks with words and pictures that symbolize what recovery means. The rocks will be hidden in the community and those who find them can help spread the awareness and hope for recovery by posting a picture of the rock they found using the hashtags #LGRC or #SobrietyRocks on their social media pages. Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers is also hosting the annual Alumni Association Bowling for Sobriety event on Friday, September 27 from 6-9PM at Scores Fun Center in Painesville. Cost is $6 for 3 hours of unlimited bowling, including shoes.
“Treatment is effective, and people can and do recover every day. Our participation in Recovery Month serves to help reduce the stigma and misconceptions that cloud public understanding of mental and substance use disorders, potentially discouraging others from seeking help,” said Melanie Blasko, President and CEO of Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers.
We celebrate the gains made by those in recovery as well as the dedication of service providers and community members who make recovery possible because together we are stronger.
