Briefs: Several activities planned to mark Recovery Month

Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the nation’s strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and communities who help make recovery possible.

This year Richland County Mental Health and Recovery Services Board and its community partners celebrate National Recovery Month with the theme “Local Hope for Local Recovery.” Officials say they are working hard to educate the community about services that are available locally.

A number of events are planned to mark Recovery month. Community Action for Capable Youth (CACY) will be offering Deterra medication disposal pouches at no charge to the public. The bags are a convenient way to dispose of unused and unwanted medications.
