September is Recovery Month
The month of September brings to mind back to school, football, the beginning of apple season and for those of us working in the addictions field, Recovery Month. The NYS Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) sponsors a Recovery Fine Arts Festival with multiple categories for individuals in recovery to submit their work. A couple of years ago a Batavia resident was recognized for a poem she wrote and submitted. Visit the OASAS website if you would like to sumbit a piece to this year's festival. Recovery can be a long process - releasing one's creative energy can be theraputic and rewarding.
