Stop Alcohol Deaths (SAD) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was created to bring awareness to alcohol poisoning and binge drinking.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of alcohol-induced deaths, excluding accidents and homicides, is 79,000 in the United States. In January 2010, the Office of National Statistics (ONS) showed that alcohol-related deaths are on the rise in the UK from 4,023 in 1992 to 9,031 in 2008. This year, the World Health Organization (WHO) released a report indicating that 2.5-million people around the world die of alcohol-related deaths. Of those, the majority are children and women.
Our major goal is to educate the world about this socially-accepted silent killer. We are committed in teaching people the signs to look out for, what to do if someone is suffering from alcohol poisoning, and what happens to their bodies.
Alcohol poisoning can happen to anyone, be it if he/she is an alcoholic or not. 13 drinks in an hour’s time can cause a person’s body to shut down. Even if you do not die, you could end up with other types of damage (brain, liver, etc.) to your body.
