Alcohol & Drug Addiction Recovery Month Celebrated by Narconon Trois-Rivires

Narconon Trois-Rivieres celebrated Recovery Month 2009 to raise awareness on the misery of drug and alcohol addiction which serves to educate the public on the benefits of the treatment options available throughout recovery centers.

Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada (PRWEB) October 4, 2009 -- Across North America the month of September is known as National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery month, with activities throughout the United States and Canada to raise awareness and celebrate recovery.

This year the program celebrated 20 years of raising awareness of the benefits of alcohol and drug treatment programs while organizing events across the country to deliver the message that substance abuse recovery is possible.

Recovery month is a time not only to celebrate the success stories of those who have recovered from drug and alcohol addiction, but also those currently in recovery to overcome substance abuse.

Recovery month is also used as a time to raise awareness on the misery of drug and alcohol addiction, and serves to educate the public on the benefits of the treatment options available throughout recovery centers.

Substance abuse is something that can strike any family regardless of their social status or economic situation. Recovery from addiction to drugs or alcohol is possible, and recovery month serves to educate those affected by addiction by sharing information on how treatment facilities operate and how help is available for those who want to overcome their addiction.

"Once an addict is willing to change their life, recovery can be achieved with great results. This is made very obvious to anyone attending our weekly graduation," said Nick Hayes, a representative of the drug rehab center Narconon Trois-Rivières located in Quebec, Canada. The last Friday of September, to commemorate National Recovery Month, Narconon Trois-Rivieres broadcasted their weekly graduation live on the Internet. "This was our 3rd live broadcast," added Mr. Hayes. "People watching these graduations see for themselves what recovery from addiction is all about - it's always very exciting." Live broadcast on the Internet was recorded and can be watched at

Drug and alcohol addiction is a real problem in our society, but help and recovery are possible thanks to the professional staff in so many drug rehab centers across North America.
