The show is hosted by Tonmoy Sharma, M.B.B.S., M.Sc., founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sovereign Health, who provides an in-depth medical and clinical expertise, and co-host Stefanie Wilder-Taylor.

“Women in America are drinking far more than their mothers and grandmothers and their alcohol consumption is killing them in record numbers,” said Dr. Sharma. “In 2013, more than a million women wound up in emergency rooms as a result of heavy drinking, with women in middle age most likely to suffer severe intoxication. And it’s estimated that one in four U.S. children has an alcoholic parent.”
“One thing we know about young girls between the ages of 12-17 is that they’ve now way caught up with boys. The girls smoke more cigarettes, they use more cocaine, they’re more likely to drink and use prescription drugs, but they’re use is binging,” explained Ms. Bowman. “The amount and frequency of drinking is not part of the criteria for an addiction. The criteria are: do you have a problem stopping once you start, and do you have trouble staying stopped in between? As women become older and become mothers, they later realize they’ve had an issue with alcohol for a long time.”
