National Recovery Month is an annual event celebrated in September to honor the accomplishments of the recovery community and the dedication of service providers and communities.
Department of Public Health Substance Abuse Prevention and Control (DPH-SAPC) sponsors the annual SUD awareness and recovery, Olympics-style, sports event known as Al-Impics
in collaboration with its network of contracted SUD treatment providers and community-based agencies.
provides an opportunity to expand SUD awareness in the community and de-stigmatize SUD by promoting treatment resources and providing educational information.
is a special one-day event during National Recovery Month that demonstrates through friendly competitive sports and games the positive life-enriching experience associated with recovery.
By bringing together treatment providers, recovering individuals, local communities, and community leaders, the Al-Impics
promotes the societal benefits of community health through substance abuse prevention and athletic participation.
This great event encourages all to get involved and strive to achieve their goals.
