Women and Over-Drinking: Denial, Danger and Decisions For Change
This show invites a close look at modern day women and drinking. Guest Gabrielle Glaser, Author of the N Y Times bestseller Her Best-Kept Secret: Why Women Drink And How They Can Regain Control, supports women’s enjoyment in drinking and socializing but raises with concern the increased rate in DWI’s among women, alcohol related accidents and the number of women who have had to check themselves into rehab in the last few years.

In the back and forth discussion with host Suzanne Phillips, Gabrielle Glaser draws upon vignettes from her research and interviews with hundreds of women to consider the history of women and drinking, the reduced cultural stigma, and the stress factors that turn drinking into dangerous necessity.  Giving examples, she opens up the broad spectrum of programs and treatments that women can utilize to regain control. This show is a valuable one for women of any age and the friends and family who love them.
