Alcohol Awareness Month is a prevention focused campaign that fosters a spotlight of attention targeting the prevention of high risk alcohol consumption and binge drinking. The entire Fort Bragg community is being challenged with having dialogue about high risk drinking and to focus on low risk consumption in order to align with Army values, create a safer community, and to maximize mission readiness and strength. Throughout the month, there will be fliers, bulletin boards, marquis displays, events, and more, focusing on these 2 areas. The goal is that relevant prevention conversations among all community members can be initiated and to remind viewers and participants that Fort Bragg is a community in which we collectively assess and build upon daily though our interactions and behaviors.
Fort Bragg, NC Army Substance Abuse Program (ASAP) partners with the Sexual Harassment and Assault Response Program (SHARP), Family Advocacy Program (FAP), and Fayetteville Police Department during April’s AAM in order to maximize service to Fort Bragg’s community and to reinvigorate leader engagement in these fields. Some of the collaboration will include support and participation in the DFMWR April 5k Fun Run, co-endorsed media blitzes, unique educational displays, and interactive partnered events to raise awareness and provide education in addition to traditional annual training.
The ASAP will kick-off April’s Alcohol Awareness campaign on 28 MAR 2018 by providing information, resources, and giveaways at shopettes across the installation.
Alcohol Awareness Month campaign seeks to establish the concept that a resilient community that makes low risk choices about alcohol use does not happen by chance but through diligence. Fort Bragg leadership must continue to be watchful, provide clear guidance on tolerance, be consistence in its responses and above all be good role models.
