Posted: Updated:

The Harrison County Commission is recognizing April as Alcohol Awareness Month.

It partnered with the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence for the proclamation.

It said one in 12 adults suffer from alcohol abuse or dependence and 100,000 people die each year from alcohol related causes.

The commission asks educators parents and community members to support efforts that will reduce stigma and increase community awareness.
