Experts Warn of Alcohol Abuse by Moms

Often times play dates consist of kids playing while mommy enjoys a glass or two of wine. Experts worry that mothers are abusing alcohol and putting themselves and their kids at risk. According to a Today.com survey, 40% of respondents said drinking helps them cope with the stress of being a parent and more than 1/3 said they have mom friends who think they have a problem with alcohol. Wine is their beverage of choice as more than half of the respondents chose that answer and wine companies have noticed. They have created wine brands targeting stressed moms with names such as; Mad Housewife, Mommy’s Time Out and Mommy Juice. Deni Carise, deputy chief clinical officer at CRC Health Group said, “I’m seeing it widespread across the country- an increase in moms, particularly with young kids, coming in for treatment.”
