PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) This month is being recognized as National Recovery Month-to highlight the work being done by many to recover, prevent and treat substance abuse and mental disorders.  Locally, Capital Area Counseling Service is noting the month and is planning a celebration and picnic for next week to pay tribute to people in the recovery process and to the professionals that help them.  Glennis Zarecky, who chairs the CACS Board of Directors says this month brings a good time to remember those that are struggling through addiction or mental health troubles and to highlight those who are overcoming those issues.
