Alcohol Addiction and Alcoholism
A new study published by the Organization of Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) considered how alcohol contributed to the rate of the death as compared to other known threats. The shocking finding: “Alcohol now accounts for a higher proportion of deaths worldwide than HIV, AIDS, violence and tuberculosis combined.” While the Untied State does not top the list, the conclusion still holds. The continuous over-indulgence of alcohol is a threat to our friends, family, and country.
Not only is there an emotional cost to families and loved ones, there is an exorbitant economic cost. Officials in the United Kingdom estimate that binge drinking cost their nation over $18 Billion Dollars a year. The problem cannot be ignored and must be addressed now. But what can we do?
