Alcohol Abuse in Russia

Per capita consumption of alcohol in Russia is among the top ten highest in the world, and the problem continues to grow. The Balashov Narcological Clinic in the Saratov region is one of many scattered all over Russia to treat alcoholics. Many patients have already experienced the terrible torture of delirium tremens but cannot stop drinking, as very often entire families drink habitually, from generation to generation.
