Alcoholism in the United States
Time Magazine indicates that one in 25 deaths around the world is caused by alcoholism. Alcohol is now as harmful to global health as tobacco was a decade ago. In 2008, according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Association, 188,981 alcohol abuse-related emergency room visits were made by patients who were underage. This number reflects about one-third of all emergency room visits made by this age group.
Alcohol addiction is a slow killer. More people die from alcohol addiction than from all other abused substances combined, including heroin. The main cause of death from alcohol abuse is accidents; however, there are many health-related problems and deaths due to alcohol addiction. The main health problems related to alcohol are cirrhosis of the liver, which is a chronic condition where the liver slowly deteriorates and malfunctions due to alcohol abuse, and throat cancer. People suffering from alcohol addiction don’t have to needlessly die because there is help for those who are afflicted.
The Problem With Quitting Alcohol Abuse…
Ninety-eight percent of those who suffer from alcohol addiction cannot and will not stop the alcohol abuse on their own. Consequently, there is help for those who want to stop the endless cycle of alcohol addiction. There are many alcohol addiction treatment centers that people can choose from; however, there are only a few treatment options that are truly effective.
Count on Our Success
Randy and Debbie Ross founded Blu By the Sea because of the problems they encountered and the research they conducted while trying to help their own son. One of the main problems Randy and Debbie found was that the typical 28-day twelve-step alcohol treatment program is woefully inadequate. The couple established that the success rate associated with the short-term programs was dismal at best. They also discovered that when the person suffering from alcohol addiction did not positively respond to the twelve-step program, then the program administrators would simply blame the person with the problem. Randy and Debbie knew there had to be a better way.
