National Recovery Month Kicks Off with New Theme

 

This month celebrates the millions of Americans who are in recovery from mental and substance abuse disorders.

The Coleman Professional Services team is committed to spreading the word that treatment is valid, and individuals recover from addictions every single day. Also, we strive to remove the stigma associated with mental and substance abuse disorders.

This blog post will focus the way community members and first responders help with the process. In two weeks with Part 2, the focus will be on the healthcare community, youth leaders, recovery support services.
