April is Alcohol Awareness Month

What is the most commonly used addictive substance in the US? If your answer is alcohol, you are correct. Alcoholism has certainly been a long-standing problem in the US. An estimated 17.6 million people (1 in every 12 adults) suffer from alcohol abuse. That is why the NCADD – National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence – marked April as Alcohol Awareness Month.  It is designed to increase public awareness and understanding aimed at reducing the stigma that too often prevents individuals and families from seeking help.

Unfortunately, addiction to alcohol is the most frequent cause of family pain and suffering. With one in every twelve adults suffering from alcoholism, the need for our ministry to reach, engage, and restore hope to adults battling drug and alcohol dependencies is evident. It is the hope of Christ that is setting people free! Please feel free to pass along our information to someone you know battling alcohol dependencies. We desire to help others live free through the power of Christ.
