April 2024 Alcohol Awareness Month

April is Alcohol Awareness Month. Alcohol misuse affects individuals of all different backgrounds. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend that when adults of legal age choose to drink, they limit their intake to 2 drinks or less for men and 1 drink or less for women. Alcohol is addictive and consumption in moderation or opting not to drink is recommended. Alcohol misuse, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is linked to both long-term and short-term effects including alcohol poisoning, violence, high blood pressure and heart disease and memory problems. If you or someone you know is struggling with alcohol misuse, there are resources to help.
