April Is Alcohol Awareness Month
The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) and The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) recognize April as alcohol awareness month. This is a time to learn about alcohol and the health and social problems caused by drinking too much. Both organizations encourage the public to dedicate this month to understanding how excessive drinking can affect health and to evaluating their own drinking habits.
With this year’s NCADD theme, “For the Health of It: Early Education on Alcoholism and Addiction,” the month of April 2015 will be filled with local, state, and national events aimed at educating people about the treatment and prevention of alcoholism, particularly among our youth, and the benefits of providing early education to give kids a better understanding of the impact that alcohol can have on their lives.
