    Alcohol affects people in different ways. Some people can enjoy a glass of wine with food and drink moderate amounts of alcohol in social settings without any problems. Having one or fewer drinks per day for women and two or fewer drinks per day for men is considered moderate drinking, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Drinking alcohol too much or too often, or being unable to control alcohol consumption, can be a sign of a larger problem. Two different issues that some people can develop are alcohol abuse or alcoholism, also known as alcohol dependency.

    The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Among alcoholics with otherwise good health, social support, and motivation, the likelihood of recovery is good. Approximately 50% to 60% remain abstinent at the end of a year''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s treatment and a majority of those stay dry permanently. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning.

    Treatment for alcoholism can begin only when the alcoholic accepts that the problem exists and agrees to stop drinking. He or she must understand that alcoholism is curable and must be motivated to change. Treatment has three stages:

    How would you like a stronger immune system or better sleep? Action between the sheets can help you get all of this and more.

    Red, itchy, and scaly skin? Discover common skin conditions like psoriasis, rashes, and more in the collection of medical photos.

    The immediate physical effects of drinking alcohol range from mild mood changes to complete loss of coordination, vision , balance, and speech -- any of which can be signals of acute alcohol intoxication, or drunkenness. These effects usually wear off in a matter of hours after a person stops drinking. Many law-enforcement agencies regard a.08 percentage of alcohol in the bloodstream as evidence of intoxication. Larger amounts of blood alcohol can impair brain function and eventually cause unconsciousness. An extreme overdose, alcohol poisoning, can be fatal.

    Alcoholism can also lead to impotence in men, damage to the fetus in pregnant women, and an elevated risk of cancer of the larynx, esophagus , liver , breast , stomach , pancreas , and upper gastrointestinal tract. Because alcoholics seldom have adequate diets, they are likely to have nutritional deficiencies. Heavy drinkers typically have impaired liver function , and up to one in five develops cirrhosis.

    Today, social work researchers bring to the field of alcoholism our person-in-the-environment perspective to explore the culturally diverse manifestations of the disease, its intergenerational impact, the role and purview of the social work practitioner, its relationship to violent behavior, differential gender response, and more.

    A listing of resources and research follows to allow direct access to the cutting-edge research that is burgeoning in the field of alcoholism and alcohol abuse. The list of research abstracts provides an overview of social work research in this field.

    Alcohol problems vary in severity from mild to life threatening and affect the individual, the person s family, and society in numerous adverse ways. Despite the focus on illegal drugs of abuse such as cocaine , alcohol remains the number-one drug problem in the United States. Nearly 17 million adults in the U.S. are dependent on alcohol or have other alcohol-related problems, and about 88,000 people die from preventable alcohol-related causes.

    In teenagers, alcohol is the most commonly abused drug. Thirty-five percent of teens have had at least one drink by age 15. Even though it is illegal, about 8.7 million people 12 to 20 years of age have had a drink in the past month, and this age group accounted for 11% of all alcohol consumed in the U.S. Among underaged youth, alcohol is responsible for about 189,000 emergency-room visits and 4,300 deaths annually.

    Just as with any drug, people ask, "what is alcohol abuse?" It can be difficult to tell the difference between social drinking, moderate drinking and alcohol abuse, but the alcohol abuse definition comes down to one key point: is drinking causing problems in the person''''s life?

    When people start drinking, alcohol abuse is generally the furthest thing from their minds. Drinking is started recreationally, with friends and is associated with having a good time. This positive view of alcohol can be why it is so easy to slip into alcohol abuse. Often the thoughts of alcohol being a "good time" drug stop people from seeing the signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse.

    Three years ago, one of my uncles – a long-time alcoholic – was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver. He was told he didn’t qualify for a new one, so he continued to drink – all the way until his death a few short months later. Alcoholism and Liver Disease In 2015, more than 21,000

    • What steps can be taken to decrease the impact of alcohol abuse and addictions on people and society?

    It's been widely reported that regular light to moderate drinking can be good for the heart. But that's only a portion of the story. With heavy or at-risk drinking, any potential heart healthy benefits are outweighed by far greater risks, including:

    Drinking too much increases your chances of being injured or even killed. Alcohol is a factor, for example, in about 60% of fatal burn injuries, drownings, and homicides; 50% of severe trauma injuries and sexual assaults; and 40% of fatal motor vehicle crashes, suicides, and fatal falls.
