National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week: April 3

Scholars believe that the oldest form of alcohol is over 8,000 years old and originated in the area we now know as China. It was a fermented drink consisting of rice, honey, and grapes and/or fruit of the hawthorn tree. Millions of people still drink alcohol. Some people become addicted to it, but they can find help.
