UCLA Connections – How is the global health crisis impacting alcohol habits/instances of addiction?

With many confined to their homes and added financial and emotional stress, are people drinking alcohol more or less? Are bar closings and fewer social gatherings reducing alcohol intake? How are those with alcohol addiction adjusting to this new normal?

Dr. Lara Ray

She speaks with NPR correspondent and host of TED Talks Daily Elise Hu to discuss the impacts of the COVID-19 health crisis on our behaviors towards alcohol and how to get help if you need it.
