Study finds tens of millions of Americans drink alcohol at dangerously high levels

The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism edits and produces a biannual journal called Alcohol Research: Current Reviews that publishes scientific reviews on a single topic related to alcohol. It is a free resource that highlights quality research and provides illuminating information for all fields studying alcohol and alcohol use. The most recent issue on Binge Drinking highlights this especially risky and unfortunately common drinking pattern. The issue contains important articles that are particularly relevant to work in the prevention and public health fields. Some example articles are Adolescent Binge Drinking: Developmental Context and Opportunities for Prevention, Effects of Binge Drinking on the Developing Brain—Studies in Humans, and others.
