Motion by Printz, seconded by Ficht to Adopt Resolution 2010-15 recognizing September as National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month. Clerk Uglis read Resolution 2010-15 into the record.

WHEREAS, 22.2 million people in the United States have faced a substance abuse disorder in the past year, and all deserve to experience the many benefits of recovery.

WHEREAS, treatment reduces reported job problems, including incomplete work and absenteeism, by an average of 75 percent.

WHEREAS, treatment is cost effective, with some measurements showing a benefit-to-cost ratio of up to 7:1, with substance use disorder treatment costing $1,583 per person on average and having a monetary benefit to society of nearly $11,487 for each person treated.

WHEREAS, we must recognize the financial savings associated with treatment services, and ensure that such services are readily available to those who need assistance.

WHEREAS, cost and insurance present obstacles to those who need access to treatment facilities and want to re-establish their place in the community.

WHEREAS, it is critical that we educate our community members and local businesses that substance use disorders are a treatable, yet serious health care problem, and by taking steps to address it, as well as provide support for the families and children of those with these disorders, we can save both lives and dollars.

WHEREAS to help achieve this goal, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the White House of National Drug Control Policy, and Greater Macomb Project Vox invite all residents of Michigan to participate in the 20th anniversary of National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month of September.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Charter Township of Chesterfield, Board of Trustees, hereby agrees to support the appropriate programs and Join the "Voices for Recovery: Together We Learn, Together We Heal".
