The state-run National Health Service (NHS) in central England diagnosed the youngest alcoholic to date. A three year old was sent to West Midlands hospital to get treated for alcoholism. Health officials cannot give any further details because of patient confidentiality rules.
There have been cases in the UK with youngsters abusing alcohol ages 12 and under but never this young. This case came as a huge shock to authorities. It is the youngest case of alcoholism ever heard of. This raises a huge concern for officials and people on the severity of alcoholism. It’s very disconcerting to imagine the parents of a three year old sitting by and allowing this to happen.
