Enterhealth Reveals Startling Alcohol-Related Risks

In recognition of Alcohol Awareness Month, addiction experts at Enterhealth, a Dallas-based drug and alcohol addiction treatment company, are urging people to think twice before raising a glass of alcohol this April. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), more than 100,000 Americans die from alcohol-related causes, making it the third leading cause of death behind cancer and heart disease. That’s an average of 241 people per day who die because of alcohol, or 10 per hour. Enterhealth Chief Medical Strategist Harold Urschel, M.D., M.M.A., author of the New York Times bestseller “Healing the Addicted Brain”, is asking North Texans to pause from their busy schedules and reflect on these startling statistics.
