April is Alcohol Awareness Month & Mercer County Has Resources
April is Alcohol Awareness Month and the Mercer Council on Alcoholism and Drug Addiction wants to help residents who may be struggling right now due to this terrible year filled with overwhelming feelings. People who struggle with addiction don't do well being isolated, they need to be around others of good influences. Isolation for addicts lead to bad choices and they may end up actually consuming alcohol which is no good. Mercer County residents who have addiction problems are urged to reach out to programs like the one right here in our area for help.
The Mercer Council on Alcoholism and Drug Addiction is offering many programs right now to support those who are struggling with addiction and specifically this month with alcohol addiction. There are programs for people of all ages, because believe it or not, alcohol addition can start at a young age. There's virtual programs every Thursday from 12-1pm. You can register for those virtual meetings here. Below is a video of this week's video program.
To get started, check out this awesome START Packet.
