The Celebrate Recovery event will be from 2–4 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 17. National Recovery Month recognizes those recovering from mental and substance use disorders and encourages friends and loved ones to encourage finding support services and treatments. To help more people with lived experience achieve and sustain recovery, federal and local services, including The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Jubilee Family Church, Mahaska Communications Group, Bethesda House, SIEDA Community Action and the City of Oskaloosa invited community members to participate in National Recovery Month.
