Every September, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA) promotes Recovery Month to increase awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use issues and to celebrate communities. On October 7, 2017, The Big Texas Rally for Recovery served as the culmination of the many activities that took place during Recovery Month in September.
People from the Recovery Community gathered this year in Galveston, for the Big Texas Rally for Recovery to generate a unified message of hope, strength, and courage for people and families in recovery from, or still struggling with, substance use. And Santa Maria was of course present!
