Recovery Month in Alaska
"Join the voices for recovery: celebrating health"
September 09, 2003
"Thousands of health care providers have dedicated their lives to assisting individuals and families through the recovery process and to educating the public about alcoholism, drug dependence, co-occurring disorders, and treatment," Joel Gilbertson, Alaska Dept. of Health & Social Services Commissioner said. "This month we also honor their good work to help fellow Alaskans overcome the burdens of alcoholism and drug addiction."
For those who are suffering
from an alcohol or other drug addiction, William Hogan, the Director
of the Division of Behavioral Health, encourages them to celebrate
recovery month by taking a first step towards their own recovery.
According to Director Hogan, "There are likely people in
your faith community, your family, your workplace and answering
help line calls who would help you -all you need to do is ask-recovery
is available to all".
