National Alcohol Screening Day®
National Alcohol Screening Day® (NASD) is Friday, April 10, 2015. We encourage those who drink alcohol to take a free, anonymous, online alcohol screening. It only takes a few minutes but it could change lives. The screening is sponsored by MIIA and is offered 24/7. The free alcohol self-assessment is found at www.mentalhealthscreening.org/screening/miiawellness. Although alcohol is a socially accepted drug, misuse of alcohol can have plenty of negative consequences. Including everything from engaging in reckless behavior while under the influence, to devastating long-term health effects. Alcohol misuse is also tied to depression – it is widely used to numb pain yet this can often make matters worse in the long run.
