Alcohol Awareness Month

alcohol awareness monthApril is Alcohol Awareness Month, and Renz Center is joining the national Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NACADD) to encourage parents to talk to their teens often about the dangers of underage drinking. According to the NCADD, teens that learn about the dangers of underage drinking from their parents are up to 50 percent less likely to experiment thatn teens that don't. 

"As a parent you can be a primary source of positive and reliable information about alcohol, and it's important to take advantage of 'teachable moments'," said Renz Center's Executive Director Jerry Skogmo.  "It's not so much about 'the big talk' as it is when issues come up on TV, the movies, itnernet, or with friends."
