Alcohol and Other Drugs Prevention month was created as a response to seasonal depression that can take place during the winter months due to the change in weather and time change. In addition, there are many celebratory events that happen during the winter months that may include the use of substances. We want to highlight programming this month around risk reduction as it relates to alcohol and other drug use.
