Alcohol is killing men at an alarming rate.

In a report published by SAMHSA [1] in 2015, some 16.3 million adults, ages 18 and older, suffered from an Alcohol Use Disorder[2] (AUD) in 2014.

Of this group 10.6 million were men.

The same report shows that of the total U.S. population of adults over the age of 26, 5.9% had an AUD (Alcohol Use Disorder) and 78.7% of those adults suffered from a mental illness, and 78.7% of that population suffered from a major depressive episode.

Nearly 88,000 deaths (62,000 men and 26,000 women) died that same year from an alcohol related death.

This makes alcohol the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. “Harmful use of alcohol is the leading risk factor for death in males ages 15-59” according to a report from the World Health Organization report in 2014 [3]. The WHO report goes on to state: “7.6% of all male deaths in 2012 were attributable to alcohol.”
