For more than 30 years, during the month of September, communities, and local organizations from across the country host celebrations in honor of the National Recovery Month observation. These activities take many forms that bring public attention to recovery and challenge negative attitudes, stigma, and discrimination.


For more than a decade, a vital part of this tradition has included the Big Texas Rally for Recovery – a celebration for recovery of individuals, families, and entire communities across Texas.
