Gateway Provides Alcohol Awareness Month Essentials; Welcomes Partners to Join Effort and Make a Difference

Gateway Foundation Alcohol & Drug Treatment wants your help in raising awareness about the most commonly abused drug in the U.S.—alcohol—as we recognize Alcohol Awareness Month in April.

Why is it important to join the effort? Most people can have a couple drinks and be fine; but for a small percentage of people, drinking alcoholic beverages creates a strong craving for more. Since alcohol dependence develops gradually over time, individuals who abuse alcohol are often unaware or in denial that a drinking problem exists. As the denial continues, one’s health, family life and opportunities may deteriorate.

The clinical team at Gateway sees the harsh realities of alcohol abuse all too often. In fact, alcohol is the number one drug of choice among individuals treated for substance abuse at Gateway.
