As reported by CNN, almost 30 million Americans are actively struggling with alcohol abuse. Senior citizens, women, and African Americans are the three groups with the highest increase in alcohol abuse disorders.
“High risk” drinking has also increased on pace with alcohol abuse. The study defines high risk drinking as four or more drinks a day for women and five for men, plus a day that exceeds those limits at least once a week.
