April is National Alcohol Awareness Month

April marks the 25th Anniversary of Alcohol Awareness Month. This year’s theme is “One Too Many.” According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD), alcohol causes:

  • One too many…deaths from drunk drivers.
  • One too many…children born with fetal alcohol syndrome.
  • One too many…risky behaviors.
  • One too many…families torn apart by alcoholism.
  • One too many…teen deaths from underage drinking.

The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services offers these Warning Signs of Alcohol Abuse. If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, you may have a problem with alcohol:

  • Do you drink alone when you feel angry or sad?
  • Does your drinking ever make you late for work?
  • Does your drinking worry your family?
  • Do you ever drink after telling yourself you won’t?
  • Do you ever forget what you did while drinking?
  • Do you get headaches or have a hangover after drinking?

The goal of the NCADD is to raise awareness of the disease of alcoholism. The organization stresses that alcoholism is a treatable disease, not a moral weakness. If you or someone you know might have a problem with alcohol, speak honestly and openly with your health care provider. A physician can help you get the help you need to recover.
