Women & Alcohol Abuse: The Hidden Epidemic

David Sack, MD, board certified in Psychiatry, Addiction Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine, reports that nearly one million American women are binge drinkers; and they aren’t just sorority girls. The more educated and well off women are, the more likely they are to imbibe, found a Gallup poll from 2010.
