Recovery month 2020

Every September, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration sponsors a National Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders, and celebrate the people who recover. In observance of this month, New Britain Recovers worked with Axim Design in September 2020 to develop a month-long social media campaign focusing on the testimonies of various individuals in the community and the specific actions the City is taking to support recovery. Here, you can browse all the content made for the campaign, and hear the powerful testimonies of our community providers and people in recovery, see how the Mayor’s Opioid Taskforce is making an impact, and learn more about what it means to be a Recovery Friendly Community.
