September is National Recovery Month
September is National Recovery Month and we would like to help create awareness and understanding of substance abuse issues in our country, as well as celebrating those in recovery and those who work in prevention and treatment.
According to reports, 20.2 million adults suffer from substance abuse. Of these, 7.9 million suffer from a co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorder. Opioid overdoses accounted for more than 42,000 death in 2016, more than any previous year.
There is no standard form of treatment and therefore difficult to measure the success rate of ‘rehab’. The process of recovery is very personal and differs from person to person, but recovery IS possible.
As an specialized insurance broker, we are honored to work directly with organizations who dedicate themselves in serving those struggling from substance and mental health disorders. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your important mission in helping individuals reclaim and transform their lives.
