Alcohol Awareness Month 2019: Help for Today

Alcohol Awareness Month 2019: Help for Today

April is Alcohol Awareness Month, and Novus Detox is happy to show our support and spread the word about the importance of education and support for alcohol addiction, dependency, and recovery.

Established in 1987 by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (now Facing Addiction with NCAAD), Alcohol Awareness Month’s main mission is to reduce the stigma so often associated with alcohol-related addiction and dependency issues.

Each April, local communities, the NCADD, and other organizations utilize the month-long campaign to promote greater support, and send a reminder that recovery is possible.

“Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow”

The theme for Alcohol Awareness Month 2019 is: “Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow.” A powerful message, the campaign focuses on educating people about treatment, prevention, and other resources available for alcohol addiction – especially among youth.

Children, educators, and parents can find a wealth of resources and events to help them engage in meaningful conversations, plan activities, and coordinate efforts with local Facing Addiction with NCADD affiliates, as well as local community groups, schools, and organizations.

Here are a few ways you can get involved:

  • Alcohol-Free Weekend – Held on the first weekend of April (April 5 – 7, 2019), Alcohol-Free Weekend is a social experiment of 72 alcohol-free hours. Those who feel discomfort during the three days can seek further support and discuss early symptoms of alcohol use disorder.
  • Educational Resources – Facing Addiction with NCAAD offers a free Organizer’s Guide you and others can use to learn more about the 33rd Annual Alcohol Awareness Month, this year’s theme, and creative ways to engage your friends, family, and communities in showing support.
  • Social Media – Social media is a powerful tool for raising awareness and support, which is why you can share posts and images about alcohol-related facts that foster meaningful discussions. Facing Addiction offers a Social Media Kit you can use for your posts, and encourages use of the #AlcoholAwarenessMonth2019 tag to engage in the online community.
