Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

In an article by Medical News Today (8/16) titled Study shows feasibility of collecting alcohol brand consumption data in the ER, a new study finds that the brand of alcohol a drinker consumes can increase their chances of ending up in an emergency room.

According to the study, which took place between 2010 and 2011, Budweiser, Steel Reserve, Colt 45, Bud Ice and Bud Light were consumed in the highest quantities by emergency room patients. The research was conducted by The Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth (CAMY) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Alcohol abuse is a serious disease that can turn one's life upside down. An addict's career, home, family and feeling of self worth can disappear. Anyone with an alcohol dependency should check into a 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village. At Harbor Village, an alcoholism treatment center, a trained team of medical professionals help clients achieve recovery from both alcohol and drugs addiction. Located in South Florida, the facility allows each client to experience private alcohol rehab in a luxury, state-of-the art environment. Clients are welcomed with upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, over an acre of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the personalized support of a friendly, knowledgeable staff.

According to the news story, Study shows feasibility of collecting alcohol brand consumption data in the ER, this is the first study to evaluate alcohol drinking by brand and then associate them with patients reporting to the emergency department with injury.

"Recent studies reveal that nearly a third of injury visits to Level I trauma centers were alcohol-related and frequently a result of heavy drinking," said lead study author David Jernigan, PhD, CAMY director. "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."

“An alcohol dependency is a serious problem that requires a high level of care by qualified professionals at a certified detox center such as Harbor Village,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
