Recovery For Shore is an advocacy group promoting prevention, treatment and recovery for all substance use and mental disorders.
In its 25th year, Recovery Month “promotes the societal benefits of prevention, treatment and recovery for mental and substance use disorders. This year’s theme, “Join the Voices for Recovery: Speak Up, Reach Out,” encourages people to openly speak up about mental and substance use disorders and the reality of recovery, and promotes ways individuals can use to recognize behavioral health issues and reach out for help.” (recoverymonth.org)
Recovery for Shore is an ad hoc advocacy group of healthcare professionals, community members and non-profit organizations promoting recovery from alcohol and drug addiction and mental disorders in Kent, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, Dorchester and Caroline counties.
The Talbot Spy and Chestertown Spy have acted as a portal for recovery issues and have developed a series of video interviews of people in recovery and healthcare professionals in the addiction and recovery field. These interviews are located in the Recovery For Shore section on the front page of both publications.
