Do You Know the Signs of Alcohol Poisoning? Don't Rely on Luck This St. Patrick's Day!

Celebrating St. Patrick's Day can include drinking – even drinking to excess. And the results can be deadly.

An overdose of alcohol occurs when a person has a blood alcohol content (or BAC) sufficient to produce impairments that increase the risk of harm.
