April is Alcohol Awareness Month

April is Alcohol Awareness Month.  The month of awareness was founded in 1987 by the NCADD to increase public awareness and understanding aimed at reducing the stigma that too often prevents individuals and families from seeking help.  The month allows the NCADD to reach out in communities across the country to bring the American public information about alcohol and alcoholism as a chronic, progressive disease, fatal if untreated, and genetically predisposed.  This year is NCADD’s 26th Anniversary of Alcohol Awareness Month and they are celebrating the event with the theme, “Healthy Choices, Healthy Communities: Prevent Underage Drinking."

The disease of alcoholism is a family disease that is treatable, not a moral weakness, from which people can and do recover.  In fact, millions of individuals and family members are living lives in long-term recovery from alcoholism!  Help is available and there are many success stories!  To read about successful stories of recovery, click here.
