Join us in celebrating Louisiana's amazing addiction professionals

September 20, 2021 is National Addiction Professionals Day, and the Louisiana Department of Health’s Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) is joining the movement and celebrating the vital players of the health system and continuum of care: addiction professionals.

Now, more than ever, it is vital to take a moment to recognize the importance of the addiction profession and the efforts addiction professionals make to support their community and the country. National Addiction Professionals Day was established by NAADAC, the Association of Addiction Professionals, in 1992 to celebrate and commemorate all of the hard work that addiction professionals do on a daily basis.

This annual day of recognition is held in September as a part of National Recovery Month. National Recovery Month aims to increase awareness and understanding of mental health and substance use disorders and celebrate people in recovery. For more information on Recovery Month, please visit 

Join us and NAADAC, the largest membership organization for addiction-focused healthcare professionals representing the professional interests of more than 100,000 addiction counselors, educators and other addiction-focused healthcare professionals in the United States, Canada and abroad, in celebrating Addiction Professionals Day and recognizing how amazing addiction professionals are!
