Alcoholism Costing U.S. Over $220 Billion Annually
Date:9/5/2013

Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 05, 2013

As reported by HealthDay (8/13) in CDC: Heavy Drinking a Costly Burden to U.S., alcohol abuse is a leading economic problem in the United States, costing billions of dollars in health care, lost worker productivity, legal issues and more, the federal government reported Tuesday. In 2006, the heavy drinking cost the nation $223.5 billion. The study appears in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

Alcohol abuse is found throughout all industries and occupations. It does not discriminate whether one is a teacher, carpenter, attorney or a respected member of the military. Anyone can fall victim to this disease. Those experiencing the detrimental effects of this dependency should seek the care of a professional detox center such as Harbor Village.

At Harbor Village, clients can check in anonymously and begin an individualized program designed for their specific issue. The facility addresses both alcohol and drugs in their beautiful South Florida setting. A 24/7 medically supervised alcoholism treatment center, Harbor Village allows each client to experience detoxification in a luxury, state-of-the art environment. Clients are welcomed with upscale accommodations including an attractively furnished suite complete with satellite television, 30,000 square feet of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the personalized support of a caring, attentive staff.

According to CDC: Heavy Drinking a Costly Burden to U.S., each year, alcohol abuse causes an average of 80,000 deaths and 2.3 million years of potential life lost in the United States. Binge drinking, which is defined as five drinks for men and four for women at a single occasion, causes more than half of those deaths and two-thirds of the years of life lost, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"This study alerts states to the huge economic impact of excessive alcohol use, and shows how it affects all of us by reducing productivity, increasing criminal justice expenses and increasing health care costs," CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden said in an agency news release. "Effective prevention programs can support people in making wise choices about drinking alcohol, and help reduce the huge personal and social costs of excessive drinking."

“Not only does alcoholism cause many health-related issues, it can also bring its share of legal problems including affecting both your criminal and driving records. If you suffer from this dependency, contact a detox center such as Harbor Village,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
