BCCS Celebrates Recovery Month!

Recovery Month is held in September every year to promote the importance of prevention, treatment, and recovery from mental and substance use disorders. 

Recovery month is an opportunity for us to celebrate all of our clients and their efforts to make positive changes in their lives – and to show our support for all people in recovery.  One of the most important messages of Recovery Month is that recovery in all its forms is possible.

Additionally, Recovery Month offers hope to those affected by substance abuse and spreads the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, that prevention works, that treatment is effective, and that people can and do recover.

There are numerous events being held in Delaware in honor of Recovery Month, including our Client BBQ on September 17th and the Lighthouse’s Softball Tournament for staff, clients, residents and friends, held on 9/27 from 10-4 PM at Sports at the Beach in Georgetown.  Click here for BBQ information and here for more details about the softball game.
