April is Alcohol Awareness Month

Since 1987, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence’s (NCADD) Alcohol Awareness Month (AAM) has encouraged communities to focus awareness on alcoholism and alcohol-related issues. AAM began as a way of reaching Americans with information about the disease of alcoholism: It is a treatable, chronic disease, not a moral weakness, and those who suffer from alcoholism can and do recover. An integral part of AAM is Alcohol Free Weekend, the first weekend of April, which was designed to raise awareness about the use of alcohol and how it may be affecting society and the individual drinker.
