Alcohol Awareness Month

Alcohol Awareness Month - Take a day off from drinking this week

Alcohol Awareness Month
Sponsor: National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc.
Drinking too much alcohol increases people’s risk of injuries, violence, drowning, liver
disease, and some types of cancer.
The good news? We can all do our part to prevent alcohol misuse or abuse.
Make a difference: Spread the word about strategies for preventing alcohol abuse and
encourage communities, families, and individuals to get involved.
How can Alcohol Awareness Month make a difference?
We can use this month to raise awareness about alcohol abuse and take action to
prevent it, both at home and in the community.
Here are just a few ideas:
• Encourage friends or family members to make small changes, like keeping track
of their drinking and setting drinking limits.
• Share tips with parents to help them talk with their kids about the risks of alcohol
• Ask doctors and nurses to talk to their patients about the benefits of drinking less
or quitting.
How can I help spread the word?
We’ve made it easier for you to make a difference. This toolkit is full of ideas to help you
take action today. For example:
• Add information about alcohol abuse to your newsletter.
• Tweet about Alcohol Awareness Month.
• Host a community event where families can learn about local addiction
• Add a Web badge to your Web site, blog, or social networking profile.
