The theme for National Recovery Month 2018 is “join the voices of recovery: invest in health, home, purpose and community.”
The month of September is
dedicated to the awareness and celebration of recovery. The theme for National
Recovery Month 2018 is “join the voices of recovery: invest in
health, home, purpose and community.”
Once people leave treatment, they are faced with a whole new set of
obstacles to overcome. One of the best ways to overcome these challenges
is to join the recovery
community, which is why Gateway Foundation encourages all alumni
to become engaged with the recovery community. A recovery community gives
people the opportunity to connect with others who have shared experiences
and helps them build connections with one another.
Marty Cook, director of alumni events for Gateway Foundation, started a
recovery community in the northern suburbs and continues growing that
community in his role at Gateway. Our recovery
community extends past only our alumni – we welcome all of
those in lifelong recovery to join our recovery community.
Gateway Foundation doesn’t just save lives—it offers the opportunity for lifelong
success, providing alumni with ongoing access to the support
structures developed during treatment and building on the strong
foundation created within recovery.

that is productive, socially responsible, and healthy. Gateway Foundation
