Wave Of Seniors With Substance Abuse Problems Enter Medicare

I am amazed to see so many in my age group ( 55 & up ) who have been lifelong heavy drinkers. Some of them are now having serious, life threatening health events with no steady income or savings to fall back on yet they continue drinking themselves into oblivion on cheap beer. Substance abuse starts early ( high school ) and if it continues thru your 20's and into your 30's you are basically a "Lifer". Some of these 911 Responders in N.Y. screaming they've been "incapacitated" look & act like lifelong boozers to me.....especially Cops & Firemen
