Alcohol Awareness Month is intended to educate people and communities about the consequences of alcohol-related problems. According to the NESARC, almost 10% of Americans suffer from alcohol-use disorders. In addition, millions experience the devastating effects of alcohol problems due to someone in their life.
Alcohol Awareness Month is an opportunity to raise awareness of alcohol abuse and encourage people to make healthy, safe choices.
