“April is Alcohol Awareness Month and a time to open the conversation about alcohol use and its impact on communities across the U.S. Approximately 88,000 lives are lost to excessive alcohol consumption each year. This is why it’s important to raise awareness on a local, state, and national scale and to start critical conversations about prevention and recovery. There are about 20 million individuals and their family members who are living in recovery. You are not alone, help is available, and behavioral health conditions are treatable.
Excessive alcohol use (binge drinking) has immediate effects that increase the risk of many harmful health conditions.”
