EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL ABUSE
An alarming new study shows that not only do more Americans lose their lives from alcohol-related causes each year than drug-related causes, but an increasing number of those who die are young-to-middle-aged adults. These findings suggest that the American people need to start viewing alcohol as the harmful drug that it is. To do otherwise will simply lead to more harm and loss of life.
Alcohol addiction. It is a crisis and an epidemic of a nationwide scale, one of the most underreported and insufficiently discussed public health problems in the United States. And sadly, even though treatment options do exist, fewer than 10% of alcohol addicts ever receive such treatment.

Drinking alcohol is a past time many people enjoy and it even has some health benefits. However, when abuse of alcohol occurs, it can cause major and irreparable damage to the body and overall health.
