I commend Elizabeth Vargas, whom I’ve long admired for having the courage to seek help when she needed it and to bravely face having to deal with her personal challenges in such a public way. This will cause many people to take a look at Substance Use Disorder, anxiety and the effects of these stressors on people and more specifically women in our society. Recently on Katie Couric’s show she highlighted the fact that this year the CDC reported that 1 in 8 women binge drink three times a month. Gabrielle Glaser’s new book Her Best-Kept Secret, dives into the reasons why women are drinking more, when it’s becoming a problem and how to stop before it causes more harm than just a hangover. May honest and open discourse of this vitally important challenge in our society continue and bring attention to the consistent need for interest in effective, scientific, medically and psychologically-sound, evidence-based support and treatment for people looking for real help…never harm. May we find Truth now. See the Katie Couric interview about Her Best Kept Secret via the following link: http://katiecouric.com/2013/07/16/why-women-drink-the-exes/
