4rth of jully Narconon Helps Prevent 4th of July Addiction Disasters Nation WideThe 4th of July is a massive nationwide celebration of BBQ and water sports. However, for millions across the nation the 4th of July holiday will result in binge drinking and arrest for DUI, DWI or other alcohol related offenses. There is a major set of reasons to get someone suffering with addiction into treatment before the holiday.

During the 4th of July holiday the local police forces of nearly all communities across the country are ramping up traffic stops, water patrols as well as foot patrols. Patrol hours and patrol manpower will be in place gearing up for record numbers of alcohol related arrest. This increase in arrest is due to a yearly surge in alcohol consumption and binge drinking during the holiday festivities.

During the summer holidays there are millions of people who will be camping, spending the weekend on the lake and traveling. Furthermore, school aged individuals both grade school and college are out for the summer and ready to celebrate. In many cases alcohol is a large part of the celebration. In fact, binge drinking will likely hit record numbers during the short summer holiday. Binge drinking is generally defined as 4 to 5 or more drinks during a 3 to 3 hour period. For many this is just part of having fun for the holiday.drunkin arrest Narconon Helps Prevent 4th of July Addiction Disasters Nation Wide

Unfortunately the binge drinking they many undergo during the holiday will not only make them more likely to be arrested, the increased drunken state will also potentially cause alcohol toxicity or alcohol poisoning, risk of fatal or serious car accidents, boating accidents and personal injury due to fights or falling down. Emergency rooms will experience a dramatic increase in admissions and visits for alcohol related injury over the holiday period.

Caution would be wise for anyone celebrating the holidays, especially those suffering from alcoholism or drug addiction. The celebration can easily escalate into relapse or binge drinking with devastating consequences.
If you or someone that you truly care about is suffering from an addiction it is wise to get them help before the holiday celebration hits full force. There may not be an opportunity to do so after the fact if the holiday takes the wrong turn.
