Alcohol Awareness Month
Alcohol Awareness Month was established in 1987 to help reduce the stigma so often associated with alcoholism by encouraging communities to reach out to the American public with information about alcohol, alcoholism and recovery. The 2019 theme is “Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow” draws attention to the pervasive impact that alcohol has on young people and to highlight that help is available and recovery is a reality.
The goals of this this national campaign are: to increase public awareness of problem gambling and the availability of prevention, treatment & recovery services. To encourage healthcare providers to screen clients for problem gambling.
Talk It Over
Resources were developed by the national Substance Abuse and Mental Health Association (SAMHSA) to help parents and caregivers start talking to their children about the dangers of alcohol.
