Binge Drinking Help
A National Epidemic
Approximately 15% of adults admit to binge drinking at least 3 to 4 times a month. On average, between 6 and 8 drinks are consumed during a typical binge.
Although binge drinking tends to be more problematic among young men, there are a growing number of women who have reported binge drinking on occasion. In college, the rate of binge drinking patterns in men and women is about even. Although most binge drinking behavior tends to occur between the ages of 18 and 35, adults 65 and older reported binge drinking more frequently.
