Celebrate National Recovery Month with Us!

Haymarket Center is excited to celebrate National Recovery Month with activities to raise awareness and resources and celebrate our employees. National Recovery Month is held each September to bring substance use disorder and mental health awareness to light and to celebrate those in recovery. For 32 years, National Recovery Month has raised awareness of substance use treatment and mental health services and shared stories of success that help people struggling with substance use disorders live healthy and rewarding lives. This year’s theme is “Recovery is For Everyone: Every Person, Every Family, Every Community,” centered around how togetherness and community support make recovery possible for everyone.

We kicked off National Recovery Month with a celebration among staff on Sept. 1st, with various games for staff to enjoy on their breaks, including a dunk tank where all tried their luck at sinking senior administration and their colleagues for a small donation to the organization. We have a few other exciting events in our store for our staff this month – be sure to follow us on social to see what we have planned!
