April 6, 2017 is National Alcohol Screening Day (NASD). NASD is an outreach, education, and screening initiative that raises awareness about harmful and independent drinking behaviors and connects individuals who are at risk with treatment options. NASD is held annually on Thursday of the first full week of April. Thousands of colleges, community-based organizations and military installations provide the program to the public each year. By bringing an opportunity for education, referrals and treatment to those with alcohol dependency issues, screening is a large part of the outreach program.
Sponsored by Screening For Mental Health, National Alcohol Screening Day offers anonymous and confidential screenings online or at NASD events.
