April is Alcohol Awareness Month

Published on April 22nd, 2019

The Nation Council on Alcoholism & Drug Dependence (NCADD) uses April to spread awareness and reduce the stigma of alcohol-related issues. Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to violence, damaged relationships, liver disease and more. At River Ridge, substance abuse treatment in Minneapolis is helping individuals on a daily basis.

Reduce Stigma

By encouraging individuals to talk about alcoholism and recovery, we can better prevent, identify and treat substance use disorders. Today, there is still a stigma surrounding alcoholism and substance abuse in general. For those suffering as well as their friends and family, denial is a large part of the stigma.

 Parents can give their children a better understanding of the impact that alcohol can have on their lives. At River Ridge, our adolescent diversion program is designed to provide education about substance abuse among teens.

Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow

This is the theme for this year’s Alcohol Awareness Month and is focused on educating people about the treatment and prevention of alcohol addiction.  Understanding the impact that alcohol can have, is the first step in ending the stigma. This year is also focused on educating the youth and how large of an impact they can have on reducing the need for substance abuse treatment in Minneapolis. It is estimated that as many as 20 million individuals are living lives in recovery from alcohol abuse, according to the NCADD.

If you or a loved one is suffering from alcohol abuse, don’t hesitate to contact our team about our substance abuse treatment program in Minneapolis.
