"Scott is a remarkable guy with very solid, very heartfelt, and very well documented advice on next steps. The award-winning author of three books reports on alcohol in a way that many medical folk, including psychiatrists, do not. His is a combination of intellect mastery and raw tragedy. His is not a sob story, not a poor wretched me, but rather an impassioned and thoughtful look at alcohol’s lasting downstream damage to brain and body biology. He’s taking alcoholic biology on the road – with provocative trench insights." -- Dr. Charles Parker, Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist, Board Certified in Psychiatry, author, and host of CoreBrain Journal.
Award-winning alcohol and health writer, Scott Stevens, releases I can't see the forest with all these damn trees in the way: The health consequences of alcohol December 2. The paperback release follows a new report from the U.S. Surgeon General Nov. 17 that, for the first time, took on the health and economic impact of alcohol use. Alcohol use is a cost driver for the health system because more long-term health consequences from drinking are coming to light… while more ‘benefits’ of drinking are being debunked, Stevens says. “I’ve championed this theme since my first book in 2010 and in each of the two books that followed.”
The Surgeon General's report has been called 'unprecedented' and a 'landmark.' The author's take: “It wasn’t a surprise to me as it, too, pointed out the toll of drinking a toxin and known carcinogen – even moderately. It is the first time a government appointee challenged the most readily available but costliest and deadliest drug in America. It legitimately signals the first shift in alcohol policy since Prohibition was repealed.
It wasn’t an I-Told-You-So moment though. It was a disturbing moment actually: Most summaries of the report sort of neglected to mention the drug ‘alcohol’ and instead focused on what the publication could mean for the availability/accessibility of drug treatment.
