The alcohol abuse rate for adults is higher in Nevada than in most other states. Not to mention, Las Vegas is one of the drunkest cities in America. In 2019 alone, there were nearly a hundred deaths from alcohol-impaired driving, as well as more than 11,100 DWI arrests, just in Nevada. Worse yet, the alcohol-related death rate in Nevada (17.1 per 100,000) is nearly five persons higher than the national average (12.6 per 100,000).
Alcohol abuse is a prevalent issue in The Silver State, but unfortunately, it’s the same story all across America. Fortunately, however, there’s plenty of free help out there for those in need.
