Hampstead is a town in Carroll County, Maryland. Like many other towns in the state and across America, it has a portion of its population that is battling alcohol use disorder. Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a medical condition where an individual has an impaired ability to stop or control their drinking despite its adverse effects. These effects are many, some of which are life-threatening such as alcohol poisoning. Binge drinking is one of the primary causes of alcohol poisoning. This is a condition that is caused by an episode of rapid and heavy drinking in a short amount of time. Alcohol consumption can prove fatal long after you stop drinking. Even when you are unconscious, the level of alcohol in your body continues to rise as alcohol continues to be released from your stomach and intestines into your bloodstream. These damaging repercussions of binge drinking are not limited to people who consistently do it. Research has revealed that even a single episode of binge drinking can have serious effects on an individual’s health. If you believe you have a problem with binge drinking, you can get help by attending Alcohol Anonymous meetings.
