    • Description:
      Excessive alcohol use is responsible for 88,000 deaths in the United States each year. It also accounts for 1 of 10 deaths among workingage adults and shortens the lives of those who die by an average of 30 years. Excessive drinking includes binge drinking, heavy drinking, and any alcohol use by pregnant women or anyone younger than 21.

      In 2010, excessive alcohol use cost the US economy $249 billion, or $2.05 a drink, and $2 of every $5 of these costs were paid by the public. Binge drinking is responsible for over half the deaths and three-quarters of the costs due to excessive alcohol use. Ninety percent of adults who are excessive drinkers binge drink, and 90% of the alcohol consumed by youth is consumed while binge drinking.

      The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is at the forefront of the nation’s efforts to prevent excessive alcohol use and related harms in states and communities.
