The beginning of 2013 has become serious for many Georgia drunk-driving accident victims who are suffering from critical, life-threatening injuries. For this reason, it is important to highlight Alcohol Awareness Month to shed light on this ongoing problem—drinking and driving.
April: Alcohol Awareness Month
The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) has dubbed April Alcohol Awareness Month. As the month of April is approaching, it is important to remember the theme of this year’s Alcohol Awareness Month, “Help for Today. Hope for Tomorrow.” By increasing public awareness of this important public health issue, our law firm hopes more and more people will get help for alcoholism and think twice before driving drunk.
As part of this year’s Alcohol Awareness Month, people are being urged to avoid alcohol for three days between April 5 and 7, 2013. These alcohol-free days are a way to raise awareness for how alcohol has affected many people. “Although the victims of alcohol-related problems number in the tens of millions, our ability to find solutions ultimately comes down to one thing….one NCADD affiliate, one organization, one person making a commitment to raising awareness of the problem and the solution in our family, our community, our church, our workplace through a focus on prevention, treatment, and recovery,” said NCADD President/CEO Robert J. Lindsey.
Please do your part and raise awareness about the use of alcohol and drunk driving!
