According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, 86.4% of Americans aged 18 or older reported that they had drunk alcohol at some point in their lifetime, while 6.2% of adults have Alcohol Use Disorder.
This unsurprisingly has many negative consequences, such as liver disease and alcohol-related road accidents. However, despite the fact that alcoholism affects people throughout the country, its impact is greater in some areas that others.
Men’s Health Magazine ranked the cities in America with the most serious alcohol issues, based on criteria including DUI arrests and deaths from liver disease.
The city with the worst drinking problem was Fresno, California, with Reno, Nevada in second. Texas and California were the most represented states, with three cities each.
