Alcohol Awareness Month
You can make a difference!
Did you know?
Alcohol use disorder, commonly called alcoholism or “a drinking problem,” is America’s most prolific substance-related addiction. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA), 28.3 million people were diagnosed with alcoholism in 2020, a whopping 70 percent of those with diagnosed substance use problems.
And this doesn’t just include individuals of legal drinking age. In 2019, SAMHSA reported that 690,000 young adults aged 18 to 25 use alcohol daily. Further, 20 percent of underaged females and 17 percent of underaged males consume alcohol regularly.
Adult & Teen Challenge’s vision is to free all people from addiction and other life-controlling issues through the power of Jesus Christ. To accomplish this mission, we are dedicating April, National Alcohol Awareness Month, to reach and impact those struggling with alcohol abuse.
