National Recovery Month 2021

Pensacola, Fla. (September 1, 2021) – Since the inception of the COVID-19 pandemic, programs have seen an increase in people who need support. National Recovery Month is a time to increase awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use disorders. Now more than ever, please be helpful to others. 

Quick facts:

  • Stress and isolation can increase the risk of drug or alcohol relapse. Studies show that people may turn to an addictive substance as a way to escape during traumatic or difficult circumstances. 
  • Regular interactions with friends and family – in-person or using technology – can help prevent feelings of loneliness and hopelessness. 
  • Telehealth is a convenient way for people to receive help, especially those with transportation challenges or work schedules. 

Take advantage of National Recovery Month as a time to pay better attention to those around you. Communities must help one another. Lakeview has a number of treatment programs across multiple levels of care to include: screening, detox, residential treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, outpatient services, DUI services, case management, and medication assisted treatment
