Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 24, 2013

As reported by Medical News Today (8/19) in Most alcohol-related ER visits 'due to beer', a recent study has found that five brands of beer are accounting for most of the alcohol-related visits to the ER. The five beer brands were: Budweiser, Bud Ice, Bud Light, Colt 45 and Steel Reserve.

Lead study author David Jernigan says: "Understanding the relationship between alcohol brands and their connection to injury may help guide policy makers in considering taxation and physical availability of different types of alcohol, given the harms associated with them."

Anyone can become alcohol dependent and suffer severely from the disease. Brand names, type of alcohol and how much alcohol one consumes are just three of the many factors that can lead to a dependency. Those experiencing the detrimental effects of alcohol abuse should check into a 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village.

At Harbor Village, an alcoholism treatment center, individualized programs have been developed by a team of medical experts to help clients achieve recovery from both drugs and alcohol. Located in Miami, Florida, the facility allows each client to experience detoxification in a luxury, state-of-the art environment.

According to Most alcohol-related ER visits 'due to beer', the pilot study was conducted on Friday and Saturday nights in an East Baltimore ER department between April 2010 and June 2011. The researchers are from The Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth (CAMY) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
