  • Why is alcohol abuse dangerous?

    Excessive alcohol use can lead to the development of chronic disease and other serious health problems. For example, this may include high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, liver disease, and digestive problems. Alcohol abuse also creates cancer of the breast, mouth, throat, voice box, liver, colon, and rectum.

  • Does alcohol addiction require medical detox?

    Depending on the severity of alcohol addiction, it may require a medical detox. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms become severe when someone consumes alcohol daily and for many years. Mild alcohol withdrawal symptoms can occur within six hours after the last drink. Severe alcohol withdrawal symptoms begin within 12 to 48 hours after the last drink. Medical detox mitigates these symptoms with the use of medication.

  • Is beer or wine safer to drink than liquor?

    No, one 12-ounce beer has roughly the same amount of alcohol as one five-ounce glass of wine or a 1.5-ounce of liquor. It is the amount of alcohol consumed that affects a person, not the type of alcohol or alcoholic drink.

  • Why is binge drinking dangerous?

    Binge drinking is a pattern of drinking that rapidly increases blood alcohol concentration within a matter of hours. Generally, this usually corresponds to five or more drinks within a single occasion for men or four or more drinks on a single occasion for women, generally within about two hours.

  • How do I know if I have a drinking problem?

    Excessive alcohol use causes many problems, such as trouble with relationships, school, social activities, family problems, and domestic disputes. In addition, it creates significant health problems. Suppose you are concerned that a loved one or a family member may have a drinking problem. In that case, it is important to contact professional help.
