April Focus: Alcohol Awareness Month

Alcohol Awareness Month, sponsored by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) since 1987, encourages local communities to focus on alcoholism and alcohol-related issues. Alcohol Awareness Month began as a way of reaching the American public with information about the disease of alcoholism – that it is a treatable disease, not a moral weakness, and that alcoholics are capable of recovery.

The 2007 theme is Keep Our Future Growing: End Underage Drinking.

Below is a selection of the resources available from the PIC and on the Web that address this topic. Please feel free to contact the PIC for further information on these or other items available for loan through the library.
