Founded in 1785, Emmitsburg is the home of Mount St. Mary’s University. Like many other towns in the United States, Emmitsburg has several residents who have an alcohol dependency. There are many reasons people become dependent on alcohol from dealing with life’s difficulties and traumas to social and cultural influences. Particularly for young adults, the influence of parents, peers, and other role models is a major factor in alcohol addiction. Drinking alcohol is legal and largely accepted in society. It is also very accessible throughout most countries in the world. Alcohol consumption has become so socially accepted that if an individual refuses to drink in a social setting, it is considered to be abnormal. Binge drinking, which involves an individual consuming four or more drinks within two hours, is a common practice among young adults. Since the beginning of the 1990s, it has become more popular. This type of excessive alcohol consumption can lead to several negative consequences. If you believe you binge drink too much, you can get help for it before it develops into alcohol use disorder.
