Minnesota Recovery Connection (MRC) connects people seeking recovery to resources that help foster and sustain long-term recovery. MRC envisions a world where recovery from addiction to alcohol and other drugs is understood, promoted, embraced, and enjoyed and where all who seek it have access to the support and resources they need to achieve long-term recovery. http://www.minnesotarecovery.org

National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month serves to educate the public on substance abuse as a national health crisis; that addiction is a treatable disease, and that recovery is possible. Educating the public reduces the stigma associated with addiction and treatment. www.recoverymonth.gov
