What is Alcohol Awareness Month?
Alcohol Awareness Month allows for 30 days of focus on increasing awareness and learning about the causes and treatments of one of our nation’s public health concerns: Alcohol Use Disorder. Established in 1987, alcohol awareness month has given communities the space to put an emphasis on spreading awareness and reducing stigma.
Alcohol is the most used substance by youth and adults in the United States. In 2019, 34.5% of 12th graders in Sussex County reported that they had consumed alcohol in the past 30 days (Pride, 2019). Center for Prevention and Counseling knows that alcohol and alcohol use reaches the whole community and therefore participates in a wide variety of alcohol awareness month programs and campaigns.
