    GAINESVILLE, FL, August 28, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- September is National Recovery Month and celebrates the gains made by those in recovery, just as we celebrate health improvements made by those who are managing other health conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and heart disease. The observance reinforces the positive message that behavioral health is essential to overall health, prevention works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover.

Active For Recovery was originally founded as Get Leveled Up by AJ Tatum in April 2014. The goal of Get Leveled Up was to share AJ's experiences of drug and food addictions, mental illnesses, and the journey to breakthrough those obstacles and learn how to thrive. However, something larger needed to be done, so AJ did an experiment. He believed that more should be done to raise awareness of addiction and show that recovery is possible and wanted to help eliminate the stigma surrounding addiction and recovery. So, he started an event called Biking Thru Addiction which took place on September 19, 2015 to see if he could gather enough support from the community. The event was deemed a success and that's when http://activeforrecovery.org was born
