Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles is participating in Recovery Month 2009, in part, with articles about recovery during the month of September. Most individuals suffering from alcoholism and drug addiction begin their recovery with alcohol and drug treatment. So it is our pleasure to help bring awareness to the general public about the benefits of recovery to individuals, their families, and everyone with whom they interact.
Everyone loves a success story. Where alcohol dependence and drug addiction are concerned, the daily journey of recovery requires it. Hearing or reading the experience, strength and hope of others offers perspective to individuals in recovery.
After leaving alcohol and drug treatment, individuals often get an urge to “shout it from the rooftops” that they have recovered. So addiction counselors begin encouraging writing in alcohol and drug detox as an outlet. This is very healthy, and can improve chances for long-term recovery.
The official Recovery Month 2009 website has opened a section asking for recovery stories. Those in recovery are invited to write about their own experiences, and read contributions from others. Some information on the section is below, followed by a link to the web page.

Across the country, people in recovery are celebrating their successes and sharing them with others in an effort to educate the public about treatment, how it works, for whom, and why. Because these successes often go unnoticed by the broader population, Voices for Recovery provides a vehicle for people to share their recovery stories.
You can view others' stories and share your recovery story to help others see that recovery is possible on the Recovery Month Web site.
We will post your story along with your first name, last name, city, State, or email address, if you choose to provide this information. If you prefer to remain anonymous, only provide your State and your story.
