April is Alcohol Awareness Month
April 01, 2018
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence established Alcohol Awareness Month in 1987 as a way to increase understanding about alcoholism and the treatment that is available to those who need help. Local, state and national events offered throughout the month are designed to break down stigmas and encourage family & loved ones to seek treatment.
This year's theme is "Changing Attitudes: It's not a 'rite of passage.'" An important component of Alcohol Awareness Month is Alcohol-Free Weekend, which will take place during the first weekend in April.
