Alcohol Awareness Month/ CAN Underage Drinking
Each April since 1987, the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, Inc. (NCADD) sponsors NCADD Alcohol Awareness Month to increase public awareness and understanding, reduce stigma and encourage local communities to focus on alcoholism and alcohol-related issues. This April, NCADD highlights the important public health issue of underage drinking, a problem with devastating individual, family and community consequences.
Alcohol Free Weekend: March 30-April 1, 2018
An integral part of Alcohol Awareness Month is Alcohol-Free Weekend (March 30-April 1, 2018), which is designed to raise public awareness about the use of alcohol and how it may be affecting individuals, families, and the community. During this seventy-two-hour period, NCADD extends an open invitation to all Americans, young and old, to participate in three alcohol-free days and to use this time to contact local NCADD Affiliates and other alcoholism agencies to learn more about alcoholism and its early symptoms.
RCADC staff participates in a campaign during this month with all the P3 clubs in the middle schools.
