3-year-old treated for alcoholism14th March 2011
A three-year-old child is being treated in hospital after becoming the youngest person in Britain to be given the diagnosis of alcoholism.
The child needed to receive treatment after being given alcohol over a six month period. Nicolay Sorensen, a spokesman for Alcohol Concern, said: "To be diagnosed alcoholic, it's possible this child would have shown a physical dependency. They would have had to ingest enough to cause withdrawal symptoms. Whatever the circumstances, it is a truly horrifying case and raises very serious child protection issues."
