April is Alcohol Awareness Month

Most adults in the US who consume alcohol drink moderately and without complications. At the same time, alcohol-related problems are among the most significant public health issues in the country. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) affects about 15-million adults in the United States, and an estimated 88,000 people die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the third leading preventable cause of death in the nation.

Adults 21 and over that do not have a substance use disorder or are at low risk for a substance use disorder, and who consume alcohol, can usually drink moderately (1-2 servings of alcohol per day) without complications. The CDC says it is healthier for individuals who do not consume alcohol to continue to avoid consumption entirely.
