Hammered. Wasted. Plastered. Drunk.
It’s how binge drinkers end up after a night of partying. And young adults who binge drink are more likely to fight, have unwanted sex and get into automobile accidents.
In "Binge," travel to a roadside memorial that marks the spot where a teenager died in a drunk driving accident. Though other teens involved in the accident were grief-stricken, losing a friend wasn’t enough to change the binge drinking behaviors of all of them.
In urban communities and rural areas, binge drinking at large parties and complaints from neighbors in college towns keep law enforcement officers busy. Follow young adults drinking too much, too fast. Hear from law enforcement, university officials and bar owners trying to change their lives before it’s too late.
