Consider this sobering statistic—the National Survey on Drug Use and Health reported in 2017 that almost 25% of people age 12 and older admitted to binge drinking in the past month, defined as five or more drinks on one occasion for men and four or more drinks for women.
Alcohol abuse and addiction, both in the United States and around the world, spurred the widespread growth of Alcoholics Anonymous, numbering more than 115,000 affiliates worldwide.
