Week 3 – National Recovery Month Resources

The Council on Criminal Justice and Behavioral Health (CCJBH) is celebrating Recovery Awareness Month by hosting a variety of educational webinars to honor individuals who are in recovery and the families who provide support.

The focus of this week is on co-occurring disorder treatment. A co-occurring disorder is a dual diagnosis of a mental illness and a comorbid substance use disorder, which requires an unique approach to diagnosis and treatment. 

Please plan to join us on Wednesday, September 21, 2022, from 12:00-1:00 PM, as we feature a presentation by HealthRIGHT 360 on their treatment approach to serve individuals with co-occurring disorders, many of whom are involved in the justice system. HealthRIGHT 360 offers behavioral health outpatient and residential treatment to improve the health, safety, and productivity of our community’s most vulnerable populations. 

In addition, SAMHSA’s Office of Recovery serves as a national clearinghouse and resource for recovery services across the mental health, substance use, and co-occurring domains to promote recovery by working in partnership with recovery community leaders. The Office is dedicated to evaluating and initiating policy, programs and services with a recovery focus and ensuring the voices of individuals in recovery are represented. Offering support to those with mental health needs who are experiencing substance use disorders can make a huge difference in their lives. Together we can help others realize the promise of recovery and give families the right support to help their loved ones.
Please note that free, confidential help is available 24 hours a day through SAMHSA’s National Helpline, 1-800-662-HELP (4357) or 1-800-487-4889 (TDD).
