April is National Alcohol Awareness Month.
HAP encourages you to think about the effects that alcohol can have on your health.
Alcohol abuse negatively affects lives across all age groups, ethnicities and economic classes. It is implicated in auto, industrial and home accidents as well as domestic violence. Binge drinking by teens and college age youths has become very common and popular, sometimes resulting in alcohol poisoning and death. Alcohol abuse contributes to many chronic diseases such as liver disease, heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure.
If you need help with alcohol abuse, either for yourself or a loved one, please call Coordinated Behavioral Health Management at (800) 444-5755 to speak with a professional who can help you find an appropriate care provider.
