Alcohol Related Problems Are On the Rise

It happens more often than not but when it happens to a famous celebrity we all wind up hearing about it. What is “it?” Alcohol related death. We all know that overindulging in alcohol creates short term problems. Any person who has had too much to drink knows this when they come to the next morning and feel like they have been run over by a truck. Most people shrug it off and start drinking again in just a few days.

A few years go by and the damage you have done to your body becomes irreversible. You are now caught in a struggle to stay clean and sober while your body tries its best to recover from years of alcohol abuse. This is no made up fable to prevent people from drinking. This type of thing happens every single day and it is starting to happen more often in young women.

Elizabeth Pena
Cuban-American actress Elizabeth Pena, best known for her role in the hit television show Modern Family becomes part of the statistics that prove this point and yet another tragedy that people will never learn from. She died at the young age of 55 from alcohol.

Women and Alcohol

In a new report published by the Las Vegas based Innovative Detox, statistics are showing that an alarming amount of women are abusing alcohol. The end result of this abuse is scary to say the least. Women are suffering from alcoholism and much like Elizabeth Pena, death.

Are These Statistics Isolated?
There is not one specific geographic area where this is happening. It is happening everywhere across the country. Millions of women are currently struggling with alcoholism and the numbers are growing. In just the last two decades, the number of women who have become “regular” drinkers has risen dramatically. Alcohol related deaths among women have also risen just over 10% in the last 10 years.

These are all alarming facts that we need to pay close attention to and women are not the only ones suffering from alcohol related problems. Men are also suffering the same or similar problems from alcohol. Getting help is the first step towards addressing these problems and an excellent way to start out the new year.
