for Youth, to continue the fight against teen substance abuse.  “Recovery is a long and arduous road, but it is possible, and we want to celebrate those brave individuals who have fought to recover, as well as increase awareness about the hard truth that so many teens struggle with addiction”, says Ronald C. Moore, MSW, Executive Director. 

“Teen substance abuse is a real problem that is facing our community, which is why it is so important to Nevada Homes for Youth to get the community involved and engaged in this fight.”

Nevada Homes for Youth is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing essential substance abuse treatment programming, support and education to at-risk teens struggling with addiction.  Compared to the rest of the United States, the youth of Nevada have significantly higher overall rates for illicit drug use, marijuana use and non-medical use of pain relievers.  The tools and the know-how to help these teens prevent and/or recover from addiction and substance abuse exist and are available— if we make it a priority.

About National Recovery Month

National Recovery Month (Recovery Month) is a national observance held every September to educate Americans that substance use treatment and mental health services can enable those with a mental and/or substance use disorder to live a healthy and rewarding life.

Recovery Month celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate health improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease. The observance reinforces the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover.  www.recoverymonth.gov

National Prevention Week is a SAMHSA-supported annual health observance, dedicated to increasing public awareness of, and action around, substance abuse and mental health issues. “In the past National Prevention Week has typically been geared towards adults. However, too often we tend to forget about the young adolescents who are facing the same issues,” says Ron Moore, MSW, Nevada Homes for Youth Executive Director. “Nevada Homes for Youth’s mission is to bring, and keep, teen substance abuse in the forefront.”
