“Give It Up” Challenge for National Recovery Month

Clean Recovery Centers is challenging anyone and everyone to “Give It Up” during National Recovery Month in September. While the focus is on drugs and alcohol, any addiction is in play – smoking, shopping, chocolate, gossiping, golf, soda and more . . .  anything you’ve been wanting to give up or limit to better your health or future.

National Recovery Month (Recovery Month), sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is a national observance. It is held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with mental and substance use disorders to live healthy and rewarding lives.

This observance celebrates the millions of Americans who are in recovery from mental and substance use disorders, reminding us that treatment is effective and that people can and do recover. It also serves to help reduce the stigma and misconceptions that cloud public understanding of mental and substance use disorders, potentially discouraging others from seeking help.’ – SAMHSA (www.samhsa.gov)

“At Clean Recovery Centers we know how tough it is for those struggling with substance misuse to give up drugs and alcohol,” said Clean Recovery Centers’ CEO Shayne Sundholm. “During September we encourage everyone to give up something that has power over them – it’s not easy.”

 

Take the Challenge. Give it Up!

Are you up to the challenge? Simply post a picture or video on Facebook or Instagram explaining what you are giving up, why and for how long (an hour, a week, a month or perhaps forever!) and tag Clean Recovery Centers in this post, use hashtags #CleanRecoveryCenters, #GiveItUpChallenge and #GiveItUpWithClean.
