TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As the United States and other nations, struggle with high rates of alcohol abuse and addiction, Neutra Corp. (OTCBB: NTRR) is developing a business plan to help eliminate the social health costs that alcoholism wreaks around the globe.
According to figures from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 2011 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, there are an estimated 133.4 million current drinkers of alcohol in the U.S. Nearly a quarter of the nation’s population 12 or older participated in binge drinking at least once in the 30 days prior to the survey in 2011, a total of 58.3 million people.
15.9 million Americans are estimated to engage in “heavy drinking,” defined as taking five or more drinks on the same occasion on five or more days in the past month. Many are unable to stop.
NTRR is working to change that. The company is moving forward with plans to deliver innovative new medical addiction treatments to users for whom traditional rehabilitation and treatment aren’t enough.
“Today, nearly everyone understands that alcohol addiction is not simply a poor lifestyle choice, but a powerful disease that can swallow people whole,” said NTRR CEO Michael-Shane Henderson. “It’s time we began treating this disease with cutting-edge medical research and technology rather than with prayer and willpower alone.”
NTRR aims to offer a holistic approach to eliminate addiction cravings in the brain. Earlier this week, the company announced that it’s begun shortlisting promising business targets in the medical technology space capable of helping to deliver the effective new treatments NTRR is looking for.
