April is Alcohol Awareness Month

April 1, 2022

National Alcohol Awareness Month is observed annually throughout April and encourages communities and organizations to host events to increase public awareness and educate people about the treatment and prevention of alcohol use disorders. This month-long campaign highlights information about alcohol use and alcohol use disorders as a preventable disease and encourages people who are experiencing alcohol addiction to seek treatment. This year’s theme, "For the Health of It: Early Education on Alcoholism and Addiction,” can be incorporated into April outreach activities and campaigns.
