Binge drinking and prescription opioid misuse go hand in hand for many Americans. According to UPI, between 2012 and 2014, half of the 4.2 million people in the United States misused prescription opioids while binge drinking. According to the study, people 25 years old and younger had the highest rates of prescription opioid misuse, while those who binge drink while simultaneously using prescription opioids were older than 26. In an attempt to reduce binge drinking, the CDC recommends limiting the number of places that can sell alcohol in a neighborhood, enforcing legal penalties for places illegally serving underage or intoxicated people and establishing a cut off time for selling alcohol.
