BRIEF HISTORY OF ALCOHOL AND ADDICTION

IN THE UNITED STATES

As I researched this it was fascinating to see how “the more things change the more they stay the same.” That’s not to say we haven’t made progress because many laws have been passed to help victims of alcoholism and addiction. As you read through this information I want to encourage you to think about the past 200+ years and how some of the same issues are still plaguing families, loves ones and society as a whole today and how you can help us with our mission to make a true impact.
