CASAColumbia wishes you and your family a happy and healthy 2015!

With the holiday season right around the corner, many families affected by substance abuse are dealing with a big question: Should I serve alcohol when one of my guests has a drinking problem?

The month of December is often packed with parties coupled with bad winter weather, which can be a fatal combination for those who decide to get behind the wheel and head home high or intoxicated. It also happens to be National Impaired Driving Prevention Month, a perfect opportunity to raise awareness about the risks of impaired driving and what can be done to prevent it.

Answer: The 4th of July.

The 4th of July is repeatedly one of the most dangerous holiday time periods when it comes to impaired driving. Based on data collected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, impaired drivers were involved in more car crash fatalities per day over the 4th of July holiday period than during any other major holiday period from 2007 to 2011.
