St. Louis Rehabilitation Center Helps Binge Drinkers Ward off Harm


How do you define binge drinking? Do you have a specific number of bottles, shots, or glasses in mind, or do you think it’s subjective and means “so much that you get sick and pass out”? Well, you can certainly have your own definition, but for the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, binge drinking means drinking enough to reach the blood alcohol level of .08, which is usually reached after the 4th or 5th drink in 2 hours.

Aside from feeling the effects of intoxication, the high blood alcohol levels can also wreak havoc on your immunity. In a study by the Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, it was revealed that binge drinking weakens the immunity of healthy young adults.
