National Recovery Month: Faces and Voices of Recovery
September 28, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Every Person. Every Family. Every Community.
Come celebrate recovery and encourage the disability community with substance use disorders to seek recovery and achieve a healthy, happy life. Substance use disorders can affect anyone, including people with disabilities in Maryland, where 8.11 percent of the adult population reported having a substance use disorder.
Our community must remain dedicated to the recovery process by helping people address these preventable and treatable conditions, and support individuals in recovery, as well as their family members.
