[ARCHIVED] April is Alcohol Awareness Month


The longer youth delay drinking, the less likely they are to have problems with it or become addicted. Strengthen youth’s decision-making skills by role playing how they would avoid alcohol use during different scenarios. It may be slightly awkward, but the more youth practice the more confident they will be when in the moment. 

Tips and resources: Visit the Talk: They Hear You campaign of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). 

If you’re concerned about your child’s alcohol or other drug use, our social work staff can help with referrals. Email or call 847-933-8208, Monday – Friday, 8:30 am to 5 pm. 

Another resource is SAMHSA’s National Helpline, which is free, confidential, treatment referral and information service available 24/7, 365-day-a-year; 1-800-662-HELP (4357) or visit the online treatment locator
