Help us Shatter the Stigma!
National Recovery Month is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.

Many of us know someone who has been affected by substance misuse. We've seen how it impacts them, their family, their workplace or school, and the entire community.

The Alliance, with our supporters, has been making great strides in creating a healthy and safe environment for families and youth in Oakland County for two decades. Join us for our 2nd Annual month long effort to Shatter the Stigma of addiction during National Recovery Month.
How to Participate

Help the Alliance and our team move the meter during National Recovery Month and ensure that every individual, family and young person gets the support they need during the continuing challenges brought by the pandemic. Since the start of the pandemic, the Alliance has seen an increase in substance misuse and abuse leading to an increase in accidental overdoses. Our recovery services are needed more than ever by families in Oakland County.
