Prevention Works, Treatment is Effective & Recovery Happens
One in 4 Americans lives with mental illness and 23.1 million people aged 12 or older nationwide needed treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol use problem (2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health).
Overcoming mental health and/or substance use disorders is essential to achieving healthy lifestyles, both physically and emotionally. Participate in this year’s theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out” by openly discussing mental health and substance use disorders with family, friends, and the community.
We must encourage relatives and friends of people with mental and/or substance use disorders to:
Implement preventive measures
Recognize the signs of a problem
Guide those in need to appropriate treatment and recovery support services
