Another important research area seeks to discover who is at risk for alcohol abuse or alcohol dependence. In an effort to find the higher risk segments of the population, researchers have become inventive in the survey methods they use. A recent study used Audience Segmentation, which is typically used by marketing researchers and advertisers.
The following excerpts are from an article posted on the Addiction Technology Transfer Network
website. It provides interesting new data that may help some individuals to avoid problems due to high risk drinking.

“We identified the top 10 audience segments in the U.S. that engaged in twice-a-month, high-risk drinking,” said Moss. “Five of these audience segments were made up of young adults, and five were middle-aged individuals. The young adult segment we called the ‘Cyber Millenials,’ with the highest rate of risky levels of alcohol drinking, represented well-educated, ethnically mixed, technologically sophisticated individuals who live in urban fringe areas on the West Coast and Middle Atlantic regions.”
One of the surprising things about this group, added Moss, was that it is one of the most health-conscious segments of American society. “They have a lower-than-average smoking rate, they go to the gym, they consume organic produce, yet they binge drink at a level that is clearly detrimental to their well-being.”
