You were seen in the emergency department (ED) for intoxication. We evaluated you and monitored you until you appeared safe to go home. We are concerned that your alcohol use puts you at risk for health problems (such as liver failure) and injury to yourself or others.
Steps to take at home:
The fact that you were treated in the ER for alcohol intoxication is concerning. Many people in the US struggle with overuse of alcohol and we are here to support you if that is the case. If you would like confidential help with a drinking problem, we urge you to reach out to the resources below:
Please speak to your doctor or come back to the ED for new symptoms, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, bloody vomit, black stool, yellowing of the eyes/skin, or other new or worsening symptoms. Please review medication inserts for side effects and call the ED if you have any questions about the medications or care you received.
