Alcohol Awareness Month

 

National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD)

Alcohol Awareness Month, held every April, was founded by and has been sponsored by NCADD since 1987 to increase public awareness and understanding aimed at reducing the stigma that too often prevents individuals and families from seeking help. During Alcohol Awareness Month, NCADD and NCADD’s National Network of Affiliates 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. 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!

In support of the NCADD National Network of Affiliates and other organizations who want to work in support of the campaign, NCADD has developed the following NCADD Alcohol Awareness Month resource materials:

  1. Media Update: NCADD Alcohol Awareness Month
