Alcohol use among women is on the rise. Women who drink have a higher risk of certain alcohol-related problems compared to men. It is important that women be aware of health risks.
The pandemic has increased isolation and anxiety, and has created fertile ground for alcohol misuse, aided by the social norms that deceive us into believing it’s okay to drink when we’re stressed.
We had a conversation about:
• why alcohol is innocuous for some women and devastating for others
• how to know when the line has been crossed from moderate to alcoholic drinking
• how to support those we love, seek help when needed, and explore treatment options

Parents are the most important influence in children’s lives. When we have open, honest and informed conversations, we can help our kids to grow into healthy adults.
We had a conversation about underage drinking that supports parents with valuable information, as well as guidance for creating an atmosphere of trust and open communication.

Following up: “Alcohol: Our Cultural Drug of Choice”
Presented on March 3, 2022
Celebrated on social media, an integral part of sporting events, social gatherings and celebrations, and festively displayed at grocery stores, alcohol is our country’s favorite mood-altering substance.
And then came the pandemic. Isolation and anxiety have created fertile ground for alcohol misuse, aided by the social norms that deceive us into believing it’s okay to drink when we’re stressed or anxious.
We talk with clinicians and people in recovery from alcoholism about our history with alcohol, why it is innocuous for some and disastrous for others, and how to know when the line has been crossed from moderate consumption to alcohol use disorder – for us or for a loved one. We also discuss treatment options and opportunities for lifelong recovery.
