Learn more about the signs and symptoms. The more you know about alcoholism, the easier it will be for you to help and support others. Alcohol screening is very important for any workplace or organization. Alcoholism can brutally damage the atmosphere and reputation of an establishment. It also affects the quality of work of employees and can damage public relations. So alcohol screening tests are a necessary step towards the growth of a company or organization. Share your knowledge and make other people understand the dangers involved in consuming alcohol and how it ruins entire families. Highlight the need for a screening test. Use social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram… ) so you can reach your goal – social websites have the enormous power to spread any message. Encourage your friends, colleagues and family members to make small changes, like keeping track of their drinking habits. If you believe someone close to you may have health issues, make them understand the importance of screening tests. Wear red to show you’re involved (substance abuse awareness is represented by the color red). Write a newsletter to the editor of your local newspaper sharing your opinion on why people need to take such precautions. Organize a seminar in your community to promote alcohol screenings in collaboration with your local and national officials. Invite students, healthcare professionals and the general public. Explain that alcohol dependence is a serious medical problem. People need to know that high-quality treatment for this condition is available to those who need it. Surprise your seminar attendees with memorable customized gifts. Silicone wristbands printed with an awareness message on alcohol screening is one of the best choices in view of the easy customizable nature of these products. They are simple, ideal for everyday wear and easily available online.
