National Alcohol Screening Day (April 6th 2023)
Today marks National Alcohol Screening Day. This day aims to raise awareness about the harmful effects alcohol has on one’s health. Many people become dependent on alcohol and utilize it as a coping mechanism to wash away their internal issues. Addiction not only has an impact on the individual, but it affects their families, jobs, and communities. “National Alcohol Screening Day is an opportunity for individuals to reflect on their relationship with alcohol and to seek support if they need it. It is important to recognize that alcohol addiction is a disease and not a personal weakness, and that seeking help is a brave and necessary step towards recovery. By supporting and encouraging those struggling with addiction, we can create a more compassionate and understanding society. Let’s use this day as a reminder to take care of our physical and mental health, and to support those around us who may be struggling with addiction.
