Every year, National Alcohol Screening Day raises awareness about the harmful effects alcohol abuse and alcohol dependency can have on a person.  By bringing an opportunity for education, referrals and treatment to those with alcohol dependency issues, screening is a large part of the outreach program.

Screening centers will be located at colleges, military installations, designated business and selected government agencies.

Sponsored by Screening For Mental Health, National Alcohol Screening Day is held each year on the Thursday of the first full week in April offering anonymous and confidential screenings online or in-person at NASD events.
