Young Professionals Board Service Project: April 2024

April is National Alcohol Awareness Month. According to the 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) survey, approximately 21.8% of LGBTQ+ adults had an alcohol use disorder in the past year, compared to 11% in the overall population.

In honor of National Alcohol Awareness Month, during April InReach’s Young Professionals Board worked on researching new affirming treatment providers and sober spaces to add to the free InReach App.

Project Highlights:

  • 11 YPB members contributed to the project
  • 2.5 hours of service contributed by the group
  • 51 new affirming resources identified during the service project for InReach
"This one was meaningful because alcoholism runs in my family. I know how important it can be to get the help and support you need to overcome addiction. People need to feel safe to seek out those resources, finding affirming services are the best way I can help."
