Alcohol Awareness Month was established in 1987 by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. The idea was then and now to help communities reach out to the public and provide answers to end the stigma associated with alcohol abuse. We expanded our programs to include awareness about other substances that may commonly be used by college students and to bring general awareness of alcohol and other drug misuse on college campuses. If you attend one of our programs, use the hashtag #aodapril to continue to spread awareness and break the stigma associated with seeking support.
