National Recovery Month - Benzodiazepine Use and Seniors: The Hidden Epidemic of Abuse

This month is National Recovery Month, a national observance held every September by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to promote and support new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices, the emergence of a strong and proud recovery community, and the dedication of service providers and community members across the nation who make recovery in all its forms possible. Recovery month is in its 32nd year and celebrates the gains made by those in recovery from addictions. And to observe this month, our September blogs will feature information on substances of abuse that affect our seniors.
