Behind the numbers: Alcohol is killing more people than the opioid epidemic. Why aren’t we talking about it?

Make no mistake, we are in the midst of an alcohol epidemic.

Social drinking has increased dramatically since the early 1990s, accompanied by a similar increase in problem drinking and alcohol use disorder, especially among women and minorities. The alcohol-related death rate for women increased 85% from 2007 to 2017! This may have started with the idea that a glass of wine a day was good for your heart, but we’re clearly way beyond that.
