Randall Blair Isenberg Alcohol Addiction Awareness Scholarship

The Randall Blair Isenberg Alcohol Addiction Awareness Scholarship rewards one student who demonstrates a passion for raising awareness of alcohol addiction with a scholarship for college.As a former state district judge and chief felony prosecutor, Randall B. Isenberg has seen firsthand how alcohol addiction affects members of our community affected by alcohol addiction. The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) estimates that, in 2015, more than 15 million U.S adults have Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD), diagnosed when an individual’s drinking causes distress or harm. Even more disturbing, NIAAA reports 1.3 million Americans age 12 to 20 reported heavy alcohol use over the past month. The NIAAA estimates that, each year, 20 percent of college students meet the criteria for Alcohol Use Disorder. The National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD) urges Americans to advocacy, and to open a dialog about alcohol addiction to raise awareness. Speaking out in your community, becoming an advocate for alcohol addiction awareness or even simply learning more about addiction is an important first step. To that end, the Law Offices of Randall B. Isenberg offers the Randall Blair Isenberg Alcohol Addiction Awareness Scholarship to an individual who has demonstrated an outstanding commitment to raising awareness about alcohol addiction.
