Alcohol Awareness Month

April is Alcohol Awareness Month, a good time to reflect on our drinking patterns and the role that alcohol plays in our lives. Most adults in the United States who drink alcohol, drink moderately and without complications. At the same-time, alcohol-related problems are among the most significant public health issues in the country. 

Alcohol awarenss months allows communities to focus on raising awareness and reducing the stigma associated with alcohol addiction. It also highlights the need for education on the dangers of unsafe alcohol consumption. 

Alcoholism is defined as a chronic disease characterized by uncontrolled dependence on alcohol. It can include periods of alcohol intoxication and symptoms of withdrawal. The condition develops when a person consumes large quantities of alcohol, resulting in several chemical changes in the brain. 

Treatment involves counseling and possible medications by a healthcare professional. A detoxification program in a hospital or medical facility is recommended for those who need additional assistance.
