September is National Recovery Month… Although recovery is possible, unfortunately, some are unable to find their path to recovery before it’s too late… We pause to remember these beautiful souls and do what we can to make sure their death will not be in vain. These people are everyday members of our community – mothers, fathers, daughters, sons, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, cousins, friends… Substance use disorder does not discriminate. It is a complex brain disease, not a moral failing… Together we can reduce stigma by being open and honest about substance use disorder in our community.
