control healthy life decisions . Build yourcself esteem and do not

Binge Drinking Adults 50-64 not just College or University students

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

Duke University researchers report that 22 percent of men and 9 percent of women ages 50-64 engaged in binge drinking- five or more drinks at a time within the past month of the survey.

The survey of over 11,000 peope states that 19 percent of men and 13 percent of women had two or more drinks a day, considered heavy or at risk drinking under the American Geriatric Society Guidelines.

The study states that this level of drinking puts the older group at more of a health risk than younger counterparts drinking alcohol.The elderly do not metabolize alcohol as well and are typically on more medications and may have more health issues.

Adults can be putting themselves at risk for: stroke,cardiovascular disease, liver disease, neurological damage, poor diabetes control..

Friday, August 7th, 2009

I read an article about a program for 19 and 20 year olds. It is a
diversion program for drinking alcohol.

The program provides counseling and is connected to the court system.
The program is via sage counseling.
