Alcoholism May Increase If Postal Service Begins Alcohol Delivery

The U.S. Postal Service may soon be delivering spirits, wine and beer according to Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe. Currently the mailing of alcohol is restricted by law. He said the postal service lost $16 billion last year but delivering alcohol may net the agency as much as $50 million in revenue a year.

If the U.S. Postal Service begins delivery of alcohol, there is likely to be an increase in alcohol consumption and abuse. Alcohol abuse can strike anyone – doctors, attorneys, business owners and executives. A dependency on alcohol could cost you your job, family, friends and self worth. Take action by checking into a 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village that offers safe, effective treatment.

Donahoe said customers may might want to, for example, mail bottles of wine home when they tour vineyards. He added that his agency may use special boxes that would allow two, four or six bottles to be shipped for a flat-rate to anywhere in the country.

“There’s a lot of money to be made in beer, wine and spirits,” Donahoe said. “We’d like to be in that business.”

Those who feel they are experiencing a problem with alcohol abuse should seek qualified medical help by contacting a certified detox center such as Harbor Village.
