The Daily Mining Gazette

Every September we celebrate National Recovery Month. In 2011, eight million adults reported having co-occurring disorders, meaning they have both a mental and a substance use disorder. These people are contributing to our businesses, connecting with their families and giving back to the community. But, if we want more people to join them on a path of recovery, we need to take action-now. Too many people are still unaware that prevention works, and that these conditions can be treated, just like we can treat other health disorders such as diabetes and hypertension. We need to work together to make recovery the expectation.
