Alcohol Awareness Month

Who knew there was an Alcohol Awareness Month?! I am not sure about you, but I did not! Apparently 2013 marks the 26th year that Alcohol Awareness month is to be celebrated!

With that said, April is in fact Alcohol Awareness month! So, all of you proud recovering alcoholics and addicts out there, you have another reason to be grateful and appreciative that you no longer drink alcohol and use drugs, as this is another opportunity to be of service in your community and local Alcoholics Anonymous chapter by spreading the word about Alcohol Awareness month.

According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, April 2013's theme will be, "Help for Today. Hope for Tomorrow." Even the best of addicts and alcoholics need hope, and the worst of us certainly need hope.

The goal of devoting an entire month to celebrating alcohol awareness is to save and improve the lives of individuals through recovery, treatment and prevention. What a notable cause!!

This April keep in mind how your choices can contribute to a healthy home, healthy relationships and a healthy self by not drinking alcohol or using drugs one day at a time.

If you or some that you love is struggling with drug addiction or alcoholism, please call us. We want to help you.
