BRENTWOOD, Tenn., March 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, American Addiction Centers
St. Patrick's Day is considered one of the top drinking holidays. A survey of more than 1,000 people found that the holiday most men associated with alcohol was St. Patrick's Day.

"This tool is mobile-friendly and a simple way for users to better understand the effects of the alcohol they are consuming, which can help them make informed decisions about their drinking," said Joy Sutton, American Addiction Centers, Director of Corporate Communications. "If someone has a hard time controlling their drinking it may be a sign of a greater problem."
