Many of America’s lawyers face a potentially serious health issue.
A new study from Hazelden Betty Ford found that problem drinking among lawyers was significantly higher compared to the general public. Men and younger lawyers were most likely to display problem drinking behaviors.
Moderate alcohol consumption is one drink a day for women and two drinks a day for men, according to the medical resource Up To Date. Problem drinking interferes with a person’s professional or personal life.
Problem drinking is a sign that the drinker is beginning to lose control over his or her drinking. It includes excessive alcohol consumption and binge drinking.
