April is Alcohol Awareness Month!
Alcoholism can effect anyone at any moment, anywhere… it’s super important that we spread awareness about the use and abuse of alcohol–the serious health risks of binge drinking, overconsumption and generally, how alcohol affects your judgment as well as your safety.
We need to realize how it affects families, friends, and communities.
This year, people all over the world participated in an “alcohol free weekend”. People of all ages, who may or may not struggle with alcohol, abstain from drinking alcohol for three days. This weekend encourages those who may need help, to seek resources and also helps spread the word about alcoholism.
If you or anyone you know may need help, check out some resources in our “Support by Topic” section. https://turningpointct.org/resources/support-by-topic/
