BHG is proud to support our local community through donations to the North Texas Food Bank, whose great work has provided more than 96 million meals to children, seniors, and families in need this year. We encourage those in North Texas who are able to donate to do so during this time of stress and hardship for so many.

It's important to remember as we enter the holiday season that kindness, compassion, and caring—both given and received—are things to be truly thankful for in each of our lives.

More than one in ten veterans in the United States struggles with substance use disorder. The veteran community is significantly impacted by urgent issues related to substance use disorder, such as pain, post-traumatic stress, depression, suicide risk, and homelessness. Today we extend our deepest thanks to those who have served our nation; we salute those who continue to serve; and we express our most heartfelt support for those among our veteran population struggling with SUD.

Real recovery is possible.

Word of the Day: OUD

Definition | Opioid use disorder (OUD) is a recurrent use of opioids, prescribed or illicit, that leads to clinically significant impairment or distress. OUD is a chronic disease and if left untreated can lead to risky behaviors, overdose or even death.

"Opioid Use Disorder is a chronic disease of the brain that requires evidence-based treatment and management—NOT a moral failure."

Substance abuse disorder is one of the most urgent public health concerns we face as a nation. There IS #hope. When we join our hands and raise our voices together in support of comprehensive mental health and substance abuse treatment we also validate the real struggles of those who often go unseen among us. We enable those who may feel hopeless, lost, and invisible to seek the care that makes living a rich and rewarding life possible again.

National Recovery Month is observed every September in an effort to educate our communities about the restorative power of evidence-based mental health and substance abuse care. Together we can eliminate the stigma associated with substance abuse disorder in our effort to restore lives, strengthen families, and rejuvenate communities. Please join us this National Recovery Month in celebrating the connections that make America strong:

First Provider For 24/7 Outpatient Opioid Addiction Treatment

We’re proud to offer 24/7 outpatient opioid addiction treatment at our New Orleans Westbank Treatment Center, one of three centers in Louisiana! According to federal data, only 1 in 20 Louisiana residents who needed treatment for substance use disorder received it in 2019, compared to 1 in 9 nationally. It's our hope that this center is a small but important first step in changing those numbers by giving New Orleanians better access to treatment. http://ow.ly/g5eO50zVII9
