Alcohol Awareness Month

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

The theme of Alcohol Awareness Month in April is " Save a Life--End Underage Drinking." The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) has been sponsoring this public awareness campaign since 1987. Drinking is associated with the leading causes of death among young people, including car crashes, unintentional injuries, murder, and suicide. A 16 year old is more likely to die from a drinking-related problem than any other cause.
