Greetings Recovery Month Partners and Loyal Supporters

NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, Young People in Recovery (YPR), and the Association of Recovery Schools (ARS), along with the official Recovery Month partner,
the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), are pleased to have you join us for the 25th Anniversary Recovery Month Kickoff Luncheon, and video trilogy
launch, Looking Back at Addiction, Looking Forward to Recovery. The video trilogy is produced in partnership with our Recovery Month Planning Partner, Entertainment Industries Council (EIC).

Today we look back through the history of the recovery movement and SAMHSA’s National Recovery Month, celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Recovery Month and celebrate NAADAC’s
40th Anniversary, as well as honor the achievements of those who through their personal and professional lives, have carried the message of hope for long-term recovery.

Together, we have paved the way for recovery to enter into the mainstream of the larger national community. Working together over the last two plus decades has made possible what many struggle to find to be a truth every day; that treatment works, there is hope, and recovery is possible!

The 2014 Recovery Month Kickoff Luncheon marks the official launch of SAMHSA’s National Recovery Month, first started by NAADAC and partners as “Treatment Works” in 1989. In addition
to celebrating the larger history of treatment and recovery in the United States, we will celebrate many of the milestones within NAADAC’s 40 years of rich history as a leader in the addiction
profession.

Originally founded in 1974 as the National Association of Alcoholism Counselors and Trainers, NAADAC has since played a central role in elevating the quality of addiction treatment in the United States through its advocacy, credentialing, and education and training activities. The event will also serve as the initial launch of the video trilogy, Looking Back at Addiction, Looking Forward to Recovery, with a debut of the first video: "The History of NAADAC and the Addiction Profession.”

On behalf of SAMHSA, NAADAC, Young People in Recovery, and the Association of Recovery Schools, we thank you for your loyal support of the addiction and recovery profession through the years and hope you enjoy this year’s special celebration!

Very Truly Yours,
Cynthia Moreno Tuohy
NAADAC Executive Director
