In honor of National Alcohol Awareness month, we wanted to create a handy guide that provides some high-level resources, and information about Recovery in Raleigh, NC. Before we dive into the guide, let’s take a look at how National Alcohol Awareness month came to be.
National Alcohol Awareness Month
Who Organizes National Alcohol Awareness Month?
The National Council for Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) sponsors April as National Alcohol Awareness Month.
What Happens During National Alcohol Awareness Month?
NCADD explains the focus of National Alcohol Awareness Month as being “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.”
NCADD encourages all people, even those not in recovery, to take small steps during April to consider the role alcohol is playing in their lives. One suggestion is choosing not to drink on one weekend in April, and instead, doing something active or with family.
Overall National Alcohol Awareness Month is a great way to start a conversation about the role alcohol plays in our lives. If you think you or a loved one might need help with alcoholism. Give us a call today for a free consultation. Our substance abuse IOP is currently accepting new patients.
