April is Alcohol Awareness Month

April is Alcohol Awareness Month

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- During the month of April, PACT Prevention Coalition would like community members to observe Alcohol Awareness Month to help prevent alcohol abuse in our community.

Alcohol Awareness Month, as declared by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), aims to raise awareness about the seriousness of alcohol dependency and alcoholism, while recognizing the serious problem of alcohol abuse.

It is an ideal time to educate yourself and loved ones about the dangers of alcohol abuse.

Alcohol use is an issue of concern in St. Johns County for both young adults and those under 21 years of age.

According to the 2010 Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey, alcohol is the most commonly used drug among St. Johns County students with 29.4 percent of surveyed middle and high school students reporting the use of alcohol in the past 30 days.

Unfortunately, it’s not the 80s.

High school parties today involve a whole new breed of drugs and alcohol, including Four Loko, nicknamed by some, “blackout in a can.”
