Millions of people across the United States are living in recovery from substance use disorder. In honor of these individuals September is designated nationally as Recovery Month. The City of Lexington has a strong recovery community. We honor the thousands of Lexington residents living in recovery and their individual journeys that led them where they are today.
To celebrate Recovery Month, we are highlighting various recovery related activities occurring nationally and locally that support the many roads to recovery.
