Alcoholism is a Bad Decision. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), 26.9% of adults reported that they had engaged in binge drinking during the previous month, and another 7% drank heavily.  15.1 million adults suffered from an Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) in 2015 while 623,000 youths between the ages of 12 and 17 suffered from this same disorder.  Unfortunately, only 6.7% of adults and 5.2% of youths diagnosed with an AUD actually received treatment. The United States ranks 48th of 191 countries in alcohol consumption per capita. Alcohol abuse has already shown to be a risk factor in developing a number of chronic diseases like heart disease and stroke. Even Alzheimer’s has been linked to alcoholism.
