Recovery Month at Ohio State

National Recovery Month

The Ohio State University is proud to be once again taking part in National Recovery Month.  Now in its 27th year, National Recovery Month is held every September to highlight the achievements of individuals who have reclaimed their lives in long-term recovery from mental and/or substance use disorders and promote the message that recovery in all of its forms is possible.

There are millions of Americans whose lives have been transformed through recovery. Right here on our campus, the Collegiate Recovery Community is a fellowship of Buckeyes in recovery from alcohol or other drug addictions whose lives continue to be transformed through recovery and education. We remain committed to ensuring these successes don't go unnoticed by the broader population, and Recovery Month provides a vehicle for everyone to celebrate these accomplishments.
