Over the past month, Phoenix Houses of the Mid-Atlantic hosted educational activities to celebrate National Alcohol Awareness Month.
At our Demeter House, clients watched a PBS special on Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD). They then participated in a panel discussion about alcoholism. Later on, they played bingo and jeopardy games designed to test their knowledge of alcoholism’s effects. Our Boys and Girls Recovery Lodges also observed Alcohol Awareness Month by creating a poster about the effects of alcohol.
At our Phoenix and Neuvo Dia Programs, all group sessions on April 26 focused on the topic of alcohol awareness. Clients later watched the film Flight and related the main character’s alcoholism to their own stories. They ended the day with an alumni meeting, where they discussed their reactions to the movie.
We are proud of our clients for participating in these important events and for helping us raise awareness about the consequences of alcohol abuse.
Every day, Phoenix Houses of the Mid-Atlantic helps hundreds of people who are suffering from substance abuse in 17 programs in Virginia, Maryland, and DC. To learn more about our programs and services, contact us or call us today at 1 888 671 9392.
