Many Check Into Alcoholism Treatment Center

According to Thórarinn Tyrfingsson, head physician of SÁÁ, Iceland’s Center of Addiction Medicine, many people check into Vogur, SÁÁ’s treatment center for alcoholism, at the beginning of the New Year.

Tyrfingsson said the number of those seeking treatment for alcoholism in early January increases every year, mbl.is reports.

The reason for this high interest in treatment at the turn of the year, as Tyrfingsson explained, is that people often pause to think about their life and decide to make a fresh start. The New Year marks a new beginning and gives people hope.
