Know More Before You Pour Notable Entries

 

Excessive alcohol use negatively impacts our society in a myriad of ways. Alcohol abuse and alcoholism causes major damage at the individual, family and community levels.  Nearly 88,000 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die from alcohol-related causes annually and alcohol misuse costs the U.S. an estimated $259 billion.  With this in mind, CADCA and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) teamed up for a social media contest — Know More Before You Pour.  Over 100 entries were submitted and CADCA and NIAAA are excited to recognize these notable entries.
