Alcohol Awareness Month

Did you know that a can of beer, 5 ounces of wine, and 1.5 ounces of liquor all contain approximately the same amount of alcohol? Or that having more than two drinks in a day is considered “at-risk” drinking”, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH)? NIH also found that three out of 10 adults in the U.S. drink in ways that place them at risk for negative effects such as accidents and liver disease. Staying within low-risk drinking guidelines can lessen your chances of developing alcohol-related problems.

The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) is sponsoring its 29th annual Alcohol Awareness Month with the hope of improving public awareness and education, as well as to reduce associated stigma. Reducing underage drinking is also an important NCADD goal.  For more information about Alcohol Awareness Month and alcohol use, please go to:

National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) website

National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) website
