Study Shows Alcohol Abusers Cannot Depend on Their Designated Drivers
Date:6/14/2013

Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 14, 2013

According to FoxNews.com (6/10), a study conducted by the University of Florida reports that 40% of those serving as designated drivers had been drinking. Of those drivers, half had a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.5%, which, according to scientists, is enough to affect driving ability and decision making.

The researchers spent three months evaluating over 1,000 patrons leaving Gainesville, Florida area drinking establishments. The research team asked those who were identified as designated drivers to submit to a breathalyzer test to determine their BAC. About half of the study participants had a BAC ranging from 0.2-0.5%. The other half had a BAC that was over 0.5%.

Unfortunately, due to social pressures, many designated drivers drink themselves, which poses a serious threat to the safety of all those involved. Those abusing alcohol can no longer count on having a safe ride home because their designated driver may be just as inebriated. The real solution is that all those suffering from alcohol abuse should seek the professional help of a 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as South Florida's Harbor Village.

“In addition to great health risks, alcohol abuse could cost you your job, family and self worth. Your whole network of friends will watch you suffer unless you take action by checking into a detox center such as Harbor Village that offers safe, effective treatment,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.

About 11,000 people are killed each year by alcohol-impaired drivers - nearly one third of all traffic related deaths in this country, according to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Harbor Village, located in sunny South Florida, features a trained medical staff who will design a personalized plan of recovery for alcohol as well as drug dependent clients. In an upscale, 24/7 state-of-the art environment, clients are greeted by luxury accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite complete with television and headphones, an acre of scenic outdoor lounge area, salon, spa and massage services, acupuncture treatment, nutritious, gourmet dining and a personalized program designed for each client's specific problem.
