April: Alcohol Awareness Month – Understanding and Overcoming Alcohol Dependency

By: Mitzee Mandocdoc 

As April approaches, so does a crucial observance: Alcohol Awareness Month. This annual initiative aims to raise public awareness and understanding of alcohol-related issues, including the impact of excessive alcohol consumption on individuals, families, and communities. With resources and support readily available, this month serves as a reminder that help is within reach for those struggling with alcohol dependency. 

The Importance of Alcohol Awareness Month 

Alcohol Awareness Month, recognized nationally, provides an opportunity to address the pervasive issue of alcohol misuse and its associated consequences. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), excessive alcohol consumption contributes to a myriad of health problems, including liver disease, cardiovascular issues, and mental health disorders. Additionally, alcohol-related accidents and injuries pose a significant public health concern, affecting individuals of all ages. 

Understanding Alcohol Use Disorders 

Alcohol use disorders (AUDs) encompass a spectrum of problematic drinking behaviors, ranging from mild to severe. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), individuals with AUDs may struggle to control their alcohol consumption despite experiencing adverse consequences. AUDs can manifest in various ways, including binge drinking, alcohol dependence, and alcohol addiction, all of which can profoundly impact an individual’s physical and mental well-being.
