Montgomery Ala. – As the holiday season approaches, we may want to reflect on the courage of so many Alabama citizens who have dedicated part or all of 2018 to recovering from mental health and substance use challenges. Behind every tax dollar the Department of Mental Health invests into this partnership of recovery - there is a story. And it is not just a story of illness, addiction, pain and suffering. Instead, it is a powerful story that highlights our humanity, our resiliency, our strengths and our determination to overcome life’s most perplexing challenges.
