Blog: September is National Recovery Month

September is National Recovery Month. This national observance is sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT).

Worship silhouetteRecovery month’s message is that prevention works, treatment is effective and people can and do recover.

If you struggle with mental, emotional, or psychiatric problems, addiction or substance abuse, Centegra Behavioral Health Services can help you find comfort and recovery. Our philosophy is to empower you to change unhealthy patterns of living by increasing self-awareness, changing negative thought patterns, and teaching new coping skills.

Centegra Behavioral Health Services is located at Centegra Specialty Hospital-Woodstock. For urgent assessments, to schedule an appointment with a qualified mental health professional, or to schedule a FREE chemical dependency screening, call (800) 765-9999.

It is not necessary to go through the Emergency Department if you do not have a medical issue. Call the McHenry County Crisis Line; the same professional who would see you in the ER will help you over the phone and provide direction about getting appropriate treatment.

For 24-hour information, referral, crisis intervention, and assessment services, call (800) 892-8900 or visit the McHenry County Crisis Services website.
