The Harmful Effects of Binge Drinking
“Too many Americans consider underage drinking a rite of passage to adulthood.”
Moritsugu is absolutely right on the money. So what can families do to stop college students from engaging in binge drinking? Although monitoring your children in college may be difficult, it is important to stay in touch and seem interested in their lives. Sometimes recognizing that there is a problem can be the most difficult, but your concern for them will bring lots of thanks later in life. If you have a family member that engages in binge drinking, there are many alcohol and drug recovery centers out there that can be of assistance.
Addiction is a family disease, and when family members become more involved in the process, recovery rates increase dramatically. Whether you are a college student, a middle-aged businessman, or a mother, help is available to get your life back on track. You just have to take the leap.
