Alcohol Awareness Month, held every April, encourages all of us to have an Alcohol-Free Weekend April 3-5. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence founded Alcohol Awareness Month in 1987 in recognition of alcohol’s devastating, chronic effects on adolescents, adults, and families. Each April, the group works to educate the American public about alcohol and alcoholism, defining alcoholism as a treatable family disease that can be fatal if left untreated and highlighting the fact that millions of Americans live in long-term recovery from alcoholism. MOG Health and Wellness and Education Committees are sponsoring a series of bulletin inserts in coming weeks that deal with addiction, substance abuse and helps to combat the epidemic of substance abuse surrounding us in our communities and families.
