Tools to stop the progression of alcohol abuse
About 90 percent of Americans have or will have a problem related to their drinking. About half will have more than one negative life-event while intoxicated. These consequences are costly in both terms of money ($185 billion/year) and lives (about 85,000/year). With the costs so high, we must act to reduce these problems. There are a lot of things
