  • Binge drinking on the rise among women
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: As a result of changed social norms, it’s now more acceptable for women to drink the way men traditionally have. Whether quaffing artisanal cocktails at hipster bars or knocking back no-name beers on the couch, more Americans are drinking heavily – and engaging in episodes of binge-drinking, concludes a major study of alcohol use. Heavy drinking among Americans rose 17.2 percent between 2005 and 2012, largely due to rising rates among women, according to the study by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, published Thursday in the American Journal of Public Health. read more

  • Addict is a dirty word
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Drug czar Michael Botticelli is working on a swear jar of sorts for the dirty words uttered when talking about substance use disorder.

However, when politicians, the public and even health leaders talk about SUD, the language they use is quite different than how they talk about diabetes or cancer. read more
