April is Alcohol Awareness Month

Alcohol may be legal, but addiction to alcohol is just as real and just as debilitating as to any other substance.

Do you divert energy away from work, school, or family to drink? Have you told yourself before that you were going to stop and didn't? Do you feel ashamed of losing control or hide how much you drink from others? Do you feel that treatment is too expensive or out of your reach?

There is no shame in admitting you have an problem. We at CovenantCare can equip you with skills to manage your cravings and connect you to rehabilitation and/or therapeutic resources within your budget.

To receive a confidential, over-the-phone alcohol use assessment, call our Patient Care Coordination team at (931) 245-1148.

You can also call the Substance Abuse and Mental Health hotline at 1-800-662-HELP (4357) for confidential help.
