Alcohol Awareness Month

April is Alcohol Awareness Month, which provides a focused opportunity across America to increase awareness and understanding of alcoholism, its causes, effective treatment and recovery. This year’s theme is “Changing Attitudes: It’s not a ‘rite of passage.’” This brings an opportunity to decrease stigma and misunderstandings of alcoholism to break down the barriers to treatment & recovery and make seeking help more readily available to all those suffering.


According to the CDC, alcohol abuse is the 3rd highest cause of death in the US with 88,000 per year. More shocking, of the 3.9 million Americans who seek help for substance abuse, 2.5 million seek alcohol treatment. Long-term alcohol use can cause serious health complications affecting every organ in your body, including your brain. Additionally, it can damage your emotional stability, finances, and/or career, as well as negatively impact your family, friends and colleagues. If you or someone you know is unable to limit alcohol consumption, seek treatment immediately. Let’s reduce the statistics today and pave the way for a healthier tomorrow.
