The public and Tunxis community are invited to National Alcohol Screening Day on April 7 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the 100 Building. The event, which brings attention to the critical needs of those with alcohol use disorders and their families, is part of National Alcohol Awareness Month in April.
The private screening consists of a series of questions designed to indicate whether symptoms of an alcohol use disorder are present and if clinical help is needed. After completing a screening, participants receive immediate feedback and referral information for local resources that offer further evaluation and treatment. Partipants will also have the chance to try doing some activities using “Beer Goggles” which simulate alcohol impairment.
