CHARLESTON, S.C. – Taking a break from alcohol this January can be a great benefit to one’s health, especially after the spike in drinking during COVID-19.
Dr. Valerie Scott of Roper St. Francis Physician Partners believes one of the best ways to stop this spike is to participate in “Dry January.”
“Dry January” is a month when people after the holiday season stop drinking alcohol and start the new year sober.
“People who we saw have 1-2 drinks a month are now having 1-2 drinks a day” says Dr. Scott. “Dry January can provide a hard reset and help people evaluate what relationship they want alcohol to play in their life.”
