April is Alcohol Awareness Month

During April, COCA recognized Alcohol Awareness Month by working to spread awareness of the dangers of unhealthy alcohol consumption, including underage drinking. Programs and events include:

Parents who Host Lose the Most: We provided free flyers, posters, banners and more for the Parents who Host campaign, reminding parents that it is unsafe, unhealthy, and unacceptable—and, in many communities, illegal—to provide alcohol for underage youth.

Project Sticker Shock: We organized a group of high school aged you to help us put stickers on cases of beer in Berks County stores warning that “It is illegal to purchase or provide alcohol to anyone under 21.”

The Hero Campaign: We encouraged Berks County bars and restaurants to become Berks County HERO Establishments by promoting the use of designated drivers and offering drivers incentives.

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Awareness: We are reminded women that no amount of alcohol is safe to drink during pregnancy.

Above the Influence: A pre-recorded lesson on underage drinking created by our prevention specialists for students in grades 5 – 8. Watch video below:
