Approximately 43.5% of Black American adults drink alcohol on a daly basis and 7.4% struggles with alcohol addiction, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. The Black community suffers from more negative issues around the use of alcohol, including injuries, severe illnesses and social consequences directly related to alcohol abuse.

Black Americans are an ethnic minority in the United States, but struggle with substance abuse and longterm problems at higher rates than any other group. The Sober Black Girls Club is one entity that is educating and influencing the community on how to overcome these challenges.
