U.S. Health On the Rocks: The Quiet Threat of Growing Alcohol Deaths
While much public attention has been given to the opioid epidemic, the United States has been quietly experiencing another growing public health crisis that surpasses opioid overdoses as a cause of substance abuse-related deaths in nearly half of all states: alcohol-involved deaths.

This alarming trend began well before research showing early evidence that the COVID-19 pandemic precipitated dangerous changes in alcohol-related behaviors for U.S. adults, such as increased alcohol sales, reports of increased alcohol consumption in order to deal with pandemic-related stress, drinking more frequently, and increased rates of heavy drinking and binge drinking.

On September 21, SHADAC will host a webinar detailing the trends in rising alcohol-involved deaths across the U.S., among the states, and for certain demographic groups. Data come from a recent SHADAC analysis of alcohol-involved deaths from 2006 to 2019.

A question and answer session will be open for all attendees following the webinar presentation.

Sep 21, 2021 03:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
