Alcohol Addiction & Alcoholism

T The point that drinking crosses over the line from social drinking to a dangerous form of addiction, known as alcoholism, can sometimes be difficult to understand. Many times the alcoholic hasn’t realized that his or her drinking has become an addiction and is something that requires rehab. Alcohol is an extremely physically and psychologically addictive substance.

Abusing Alcohol can lead to overdose and other serious health problems, especially when combined with other drugs. Intoxication can impair brain function and motor skills; heavy use can increase risk of certain cancers, stroke, and liver disease.

Alcohol abuse, which can lead to alcoholism, is a pattern of drinking that results in harm to one’s health, interpersonal relationships, or ability to work.
