    Perri Peltz is a filmmaker behind the new documentary Risky Drinking.  It's a co-producting between HBO and the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.  Today I talk with Perri and Dr. George Koob who is the director of the NIAAA about some of the signs that you or someone you love might have an alcohol disorder, the toll alcoholism can take on a person's physical and mental health, and some of the new treatments being used that go way beyond the traditional 12-step model.

    Risky Drinking airs tonight at 8PM EST on HBO.  You can also watch it on demand with a membership to HBO GO or HBO NOW.  For more information, visit  For more information on alcohol disorders and treatment options, visit the NIAAA website at
