What is alcoholism?

Alcoholism is a chronic and progressive disease that can be fatal without alcohol treatment.  Alcohol abuse includes the inability to control drinking, continued drinking despite knowing its negative affects, the need for more alcohol because of a growing tolerance of alcohol, and symptoms of withdrawal such as shakiness and cloudy thinking when the alcoholic suddenly stops drinking.  The alcoholic has little chance of stopping drinking on their own. That’s where alcohol treatment can help.

Before one becomes dependent on alcohol (and therefore and alcoholic) they may be in a stage of Abuse.  At his stage a person still has the ability to stop drinking or to cut down on their alcohol consumption on their own.  But guidance from on outside source is most often helpful in preventing the drinker from complete dependence.

Whether you or someone you love are alcohol dependent or alcohol abusing I can help.
