To recognize the serious problem of alcohol abuse, April is designated "Alcohol Awareness Month." April marks the annual observance of National Alcohol Screening Day(NASD). At locations across the United States, people can be screened anonymously to see if their drinking may be risky.

Participants who come into a screening site will have the opportunity to view an educational presentation and pick up educational materials, such as a questionnaire that screens for risky drinking and dependence. People can also meet one-on-one with a health professional to discuss any concerns. The screenings are often free, and always anonymous. If you suspect that you might have a drinking problem or you know someone abuses alcohol please contact the:

Warning Signs of Alcohol Abuse

If you answer "yes" to any of the following questions, you may have a problem with alcohol:

  • Do you drink alone when you feel angry or sad?
  • Does your drinking ever make you late for work?
  • Does your drinking worry your family?
  • Do you ever drink after telling yourself you won't?
  • Do you ever forget what you did while drinking?
  • Do you get headaches or have a hangover after drinking?
