Each year, the County participates in the Recovery Happens Rally at the State Capital, where thousands gather to increase awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use disorders and to celebrate recovery. The event this year will be virtual but typically has included a recovery walk, pancake breakfast and provider fair. The Recovery Month event
is organized by the California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP).
This year the 28th Annual Recovery Happens is being held as a virtual live online event on Wednesday, Sep. 2, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and will include keynote speakers. To participate in the online event, register online for free.
“It is critical that people experiencing substance use disorders receive the support they need,” said Sacramento County Alcohol and Drug Services Division Manager, Lori Miller. “The reality is that behavioral health is essential to health, prevention works, treatment is effective and people recover.”
Sacramento County provides various alcohol and drug treatment services that range from outpatient treatment, medication-assisted treatment (MAT), residential treatment, detoxification and perinatal services.
