April is National Alcohol Awareness Month

Date: April 9, 2021

Excessive alcohol use is responsible for more than 95,000 deaths in the United States each year, or 261 deaths per day.  These deaths shorten the lives of those who die by an average of almost 29 years, for a total of 2.8 million years of potential life lost.

It is a leading cause of preventable death in the United States and costs the nation $249 billion, Criminal Justice -$25 billion, Collisions-$13 billion, Healthcare-$28 billion and Workplace productivity-$179 billion, all of which is a drain on the American economy as reported in 2010 Center of Disease and Prevention Cost of Excessive Alcohol Use on the Economy.
