School administrators need to be keenly aware of this danger and make certain that their student body knows that engaging in such a practice can quite possibly lead to death.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) October 22, 2012
While new trends for getting high and drunk are always around the bend, a particularly disturbing one is rearing its ugly head on campuses across America.
Students around the nation have been linked to a practice known as “alcohol enemas”. The practice is just as it sounds: alcohol is introduced into the body via a rectal enema. Several of those students who have participated in this practice have ended up in the ER, close to death.
“There are so many problems with this type of practice,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center. “Since the colon is an area of the body that is full of more capillaries and blood vessels than most areas of the body, an individual who engages in this practice will become drunk very, very quickly. In addition, the alcohol also bypasses the liver, which is a very dangerous aspect. The liver is used as a filtering mechanism for the body. When that filtering mechanism isn’t present, the alcohol is far more toxic to the body. School administrators need to be keenly aware of this danger and make certain that their student body knows that engaging in such a practice can quite possibly lead to death.”
While different treatment options do exist for alcohol dependency, the most effective means of treatment is through a holistic drug rehab and alcohol treatment program. Suffering in silence doesn’t have to be an option. Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center has licensed, professional counselors and medical professionals who will help on the journey to sobriety, every step of the way.
