Not only is blacking out dangerous, but it can be life-threatening.
(PRWEB) October 04, 2012
Yet another disturbing trend emerging among college students is what they term ‘blackout parties’.
The goal of young people at a blackout party is to, simply, completely black out from drinking too much alcohol in a short period of time. And, many college students will do nearly anything to black out completely.
“Parents and school officials need to be aware of this current trend,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug and Alcohol Rehab. “Not only is blacking out dangerous, but it can be life-threatening. Consuming alcohol quickly, and in great quantities, can lead to alcohol poisoning. In addition, dangerous falls and risky behaviors are also associated with binging on alcohol. Communicating the clear risks and dangers of binge drinking to college students is imperative.”
The Centers For Disease Control estimates that approximately 90% of underage alcohol consumption is done through binge drinking. If the symptoms of alcohol abuse are recognized in a loved one, Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center can assist in designing a personalized alcohol rehab program for their individual needs. Mountainside’s comprehensive alcohol rehab program has been recognized as a standout program among treatment professionals.
