September is National Recovery Month!

Recovery Month, sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), is a celebration of individuals living in recovery, working to increase awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders. In Vermont, the Vermont Recovery Network has a variety of resources to offer.
Mental and substance use disorders affect millions of Americans. Supporting recovery strengthens our families and our communities, encourages public awareness, and helps people begin their recovery journeys. Vermont-based LGBTQ Community Centers, like Outright and Pride Center, are examples of where support can be found that fits SAMHSA’s mission. To be connected with resources that you or your loved ones need, call 2-1-1 or text your zip code to 898211.

In 2017, what were Vermonters most in need of?

Each year, we evaluate the services Vermonters were referred to the most and publish them as our Barometer of Community Needs. Curious about which services made the Top 10? Click here to find out!

 

Vermont 2-1-1 is the number to dial to find out about hundreds of important community resources, like emergency food and shelter, disability services, counseling, senior services, health care, child care, drug and alcohol programs, legal assistance, transportation agencies, educational and volunteer opportunities, and much more.

 

2-1-1 is not an emergency number like 9-1-1, nor is it directory assistance like 4-1-1.

 

2-1-1 is your first step toward solving everyday problems or

when you are facing difficult times.


It’s a free service. It’s confidential. It’s 24/7.
