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), 29.5 million people were diagnosed with alcoholism in 2021, a whopping 64 percent of those with diagnosed substance use problems.
And this doesn’t just include individuals of legal drinking age. In 2021, SAMHSA reported that 5.9 million young adults aged 12 to 20 use alcohol monthly.
Adult & Teen Challenge’s mission 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.
