April is Alcohol Awareness Month
April is Alcohol Awareness Month! Founded and sponsored by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Alcohol Awareness Month was established in 1987 to help reduce the stigma often associated with alcoholism by encouraging communities to reach out to the American public each April with information about alcohol, alcoholism, and recovery. With this year’s theme, “Connecting the Dots: Opportunities for Recovery. A Comprehensive Approach To Addressing Underage Drinking,” the month of April 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 important role that parents can play in giving kids a better understanding of the impact that alcohol can have on their lives.
