College BORG Drinking Trend | What Parents Need to Know
What's in those gallon jugs seen on college campuses?

Paramount Wellness Retreat’s resident addiction expert and recovery specialist, Dominic Chianese Jr., visits Spectrum News NY1 to discuss the recent development of the latest college trend: Borg, short for “blackout rage gallon,” promoting blackout fun without the hangover.

This popular DIY drink consists of students taking a gallon jug of water, emptying it to fit in their desired amount of alcohol, and adding in some sort of flavoring like water-enhancing drops or powdered drink. While students claim it is safe, many alcohol emergencies have emerged on college campuses, raising a serious concern about the dangers of binge drinking. Chianese discusses what warning signs to look out for.
