Alcoholism is Treatable
If you are struggling with alcohol dependence or addiction, you are not alone. In fact, it is estimated that up to 30% of Americans abuse or are addicted to alcohol.* Given the pervasiveness of alcohol use and abuse in our society, it can be difficult to know when drinking has become unmanageable. While many people can engage in social drinking from time to time without developing dependence, many others simply cannot.
The good news is that alcoholism is highly treatable, especially for those who receive comprehensive treatment and have access to continued social support. Alcoholism can develop in people of all walks of life. It crosses boundaries of age, gender, education, and socio-economic status. If you are concerned that you (or a loved one) may have developed an alcohol addiction, especially if you are also suffering from a co-occurring disorder such as depression or anxiety, please call us to discuss your concerns and continue reading about alcohol addiction treatment below.
