On-Duty Marines Test High for Alcohol During Random Testing

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) September 23, 2013

As reported by Military Times (9/14), in the article titled, On-duty Marines pop positive in spot blood-alcohol tests, sixteen marines tested positive for alcohol during random tests conducted earlier this year.

According to the test results, more than half of them had about two drinks or more in their sytems. The Marines who tested positive were in the minority as just three-tenths of 1 percent of the 5,125 Marines tested were found to have alcohol in their systems.

At Harbor Village, an alcoholism treatment center, clients with substance abuse problems can check in and begin a proven step-by-step program to help them become sober. The facility addresses both alcohol and drugs in their beautiful South Florida setting. A 24/7 medically supervised detox 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 On-duty Marines pop positive in spot blood-alcohol tests, the number of positive tests is expected to rise significantly as thousands of Marines are still to be tested.

The Marine Corps’ new Alcohol Screening Program has set a goal of reducing the number of its service men who are under the influence of alcohol. “But the program did not take full effect until May, when breathalyzer devices were delivered to all major installations across the service,” said Dr. Linda Love, assistant branch head of Prevention and Clinical Services at Marine and Family Programs Division aboard Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va.

At this time, every Marine base has the necessary gear. The plan is to have all Marines tested randomly for alcohol twice each year. Each unit's commander will decide when alcohol screenings should be administered.

“An alcohol abuse issue doesn't have to ruin your life. Contact a detox center such as Harbor Village and receive the care you need,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
