Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow


All around us in Tompkins County , people are in recovery from alcoholism. You may not see them or know them, but they are contributing to our businesses, connecting with their families, and giving back to the community. They have struggled with their own personal nightmares and have set their feet solidly on a path toward hope. Yet, for others to join them and be a part of building a stronger, healthier community, we need to take action – now. By working together, we can make a difference in the life of someone in need and help fulfill the promise of a more hopeful tomorrow for generations to come.

To this end, every April, people across America celebrate Alcohol Awareness Month, an initiative founded and sponsored by NCADD (National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence). The theme of this year’s celebration is “Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow.”

During Alcohol Awareness Month, we recognize the damaging effects of alcohol and alcoholism and renew our support for individuals battling to overcome addiction. “Help for Today, Hope for Tomorrow” urges all Americans to promote treatment and recovery options and to support all those whose lives have been affected.
