Join the community to promote recovery and health

The Department of Behavioral Health (DBH) and its partners welcome members of the community to celebrate National Recovery Month by attending the 15th Annual Recovery Happens event on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the National Orange Show, 690 S. Arrowhead Ave. (Gate 8) in San Bernardino.

Recovery Happens is a free, family-centered event designed to raise awareness of substance use disorders and celebrate the successes of those in the recovery process. The event will feature children’s activities, a resource fair, entertainment, music, community performances, outside sports and lunch, all made possible through the support of local community partners, agencies and businesses. A special tribute will take place for individuals in recovery, their families and friends, and those working in the field of prevention, substance use disorder treatment and recovery support services.

Every September the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) sponsors National Recovery Month a celebration adopted by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors in 2011. SAMHSA is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Services that provides the necessary resources to combat mental illness substance use disorders and promote better health for all Americans. The theme for Recovery Month 2018 is, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Invest in Health, Treatment, Home, Community, and Purpose.” This year’s theme explores integrated care and how a strong sense of community, sense of purpose and leadership contribute to effective treatment options that can help support recovery.

“Millions of Americans are living in recovery. Often their successes go unnoticed by our broader communities, as do their stories. Join us as we celebrate stories of recovery that are happening every day in San Bernardino County,” said DBH Director Veronica Kelley.

DBH’s Substance Use Disorder and Recovery Services (SUDRS) provides a full range of substance use disorder prevention, treatment and recovery support for communities and residents of San Bernardino County through a network of community based organizations and County-operated clinics. Through SUDRS, DBH is supporting the Countywide Vision of creating a county in which those who reside and invest can prosper and achieve well-being.
