On the September 1st, 2020 Board of Supervisors meeting, Michelle Steel, Chairwoman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, proclaimed September as National Recovery Month as a way of recognizing those recovering from mental and substance abuse disorders. It further celebrates the new and evidence-based treatments and recovery practices.
“This observance recognizes the millions of Americans that are recovering from mental and substance abuse disorders,” said Michelle Steel. “Treatment of these disorders does work and so many Americans do recover. This month pays tribute to all of those that are going through the recovery process and all the healthcare providers who dedicate their lives to helping those facing addiction, alcoholism and drug dependence.”
