Your Path To Healing Starts at Mt. Sinai

What Is Alcohol Awareness Month?

Alcohol Awareness Month takes place every April and is designed to reduce the stigma surrounding alcoholism and provide those struggling with useful resources and recovery tools.

The program was originally introduced by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) to educate college students on the dangers of drinking too much, but it has developed into a national movement to help ensure those with drinking problems get the help they need.

Dealing With Denial

Addiction is a disease and requires medical treatment, but many people still see it as a behavioral defect or a lack of self-control. Due to this stigma, many people refuse to acknowledge that they have a problem, and well-meaning loved ones sometimes enable addictive behaviors.

Often, people who are battling alcoholism underestimate the amount they are drinking or the seriousness of their problem or overestimate their ability to quit. Similarly, loved ones may not know how to talk to this person about their addictive behaviors or simply feel uncomfortable acknowledging the gravity of the problem.

As part of Alcohol Awareness Month, many organizations provide valuable resources to people with substance abuse disorders and their families.

Additionally, recovery centers like Mount Sinai Wellness Center educate the public about their treatment options and encourage people to get help.
