Alcohol Dependency

What is alcohol dependency?

About 18 million adults in the United States have alcohol dependency or an alcohol use disorder. This includes alcohol abuse and alcoholism. With any of these, drinking causes harm or distress within your life and is a habit you can’t break on your own. 

The addiction treatment center at Raj Pain Clinic and Recovery Centers may be the solution you’ve been searching for.

What are the symptoms of alcohol dependency?

If you suffer from alcohol dependency, you might experience:

  • Not being to stop drinking once you start
  • Loss of control when drinking
  • Alcohol cravings
  • A need to drink more to feel alcohol’s effects

You may also binge drink, which means having four or more drinks in two hours for women and five or more drinks within two hours for men. 

Alcohol dependency can cause problems at work, school, home, or with personal relationships, and increase your risk of automobile accidents and other injuries.

What are the complications of alcohol dependency?

While having a drink every now and then may not cause health damage, heavy alcohol use or alcohol dependency can lead to:

  • Liver, brain, or eye problems
  • Neurological impairments or memory loss
  • Digestive problems
  • Heart damage
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Diabetes complications
  • Increased cancer risks
  • Birth defects during pregnancy
  • Bone damage
  • A weak immune system

Alcohol can interact with certain medications, making them more or less effective – or even dangerous.
