Almost 21 million Americans ages 12 and older had a problem with the use of alcohol or drugs in 2015, the latest year for which data is available, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Every September, SAMHSA sponsors Recovery Month to increase awareness of mental health and substance use disorders and celebrate those who recover.

In honor of this very important month and all the valuable work that is done year-round to improve understanding of addiction, here is a list of resources for those with a substance use disorder and the people who love them, and also for the professionals who treat them.
