Planning Partners

The Planning Partners help promote and plan Recovery Month, disseminate materials, and sponsor events across the country.

The Planning Partners are involved in planning National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) activities in conjunction with the SAMHSA Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and with support from the SAMHSA Center for Mental Health Services.

Currently, the Planning Partners are comprised of more than 300 federal, state, and local government entities, as well as nonprofit organizations and associations affiliated with prevention, treatment, and recovery of mental and/or substance use disorders.

You are encouraged to involve the national organizations and local affiliates or chapters in your state and ask them to collaborate with your organization on Recovery Month planning. You can find local affiliates or chapters by contacting the national organizations directly.

You can also download the Directory of Single State Substance Abuse Agencies – 2016 (PDF | 191 KB), which is a list of state offices that provide local information and guidance about substance use and/or mental disorders.

We are a policy advocacy movement that is taking on issues of discrimination, social justice and service access. 

We are also a public and professional education movement, intent on challenging stigma. We do this by delivering messages of hope to the cultures of addiction within our systems and treatment.

What we hope to show via the walks and Faces & Voices of Recovery UK is

  1. There is viable and varied recovery solutions for alcohol and other drug problems.
  2. We are examples of real people who illustrate the diversity of those recovery solutions.
  3. We can challenge any public attempt to dehumanise, objectify and demonise those with alcohol and other drug problems.
  4. Advocate for variety, availability, and quality of local/regional treatment and recovery support services.
  5. Advocate for barriers to recovery, including the promotion of laws and social policies that reduce alcohol and other drug problems and support recovery for those suffering from alcohol and other drug problems.
