WASHINGTON DC, -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) show that within the United States, excess alcohol use is the third leading cause of death from lifestyle-related factors, accounting for over 2 million deaths annually.

“Current recommendations for alcohol consumption form the CDC are no more than 1 drink daily for women and 2 drinks daily for men” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center . “Some immediate effects of excessive alcohol consumption are obvious, such as unintentional injury, domestic abuse and risky sexual behaviors, among others. Other effects from excessive alcohol consumption develop over the long-term, such as neurological problems, social problems, various cancers and irreversible liver disease. The good news is that all of these alcohol-related problems are preventable simply by eliminating alcohol from one's daily diet. Naturally, that can be easier said than done for some individuals - that's why a comprehensive residential addiction treatment program may be best for some.”
