It is estimated that more than 14 million Americans struggle with an alcohol use disorder. These disorders can range from mild to severe and cause significant disruptions in people’s lives. An unhealthy relationship with alcohol can strain your relationships, jeopardize your health, impact your ability to work and put your safety at risk. If you are wondering if you or someone you love may be an alcoholic, here are some of the most common symptoms:

  • Inability to limit alcohol intake
  • Strong urges or cravings to drink
  • Failing to meet important work, social and family commitments because of alcohol use
  • Continuing to drink alcohol even when you know it is causing you physical, social or emotional problems
  • Feeling anxious or stressed when you do not have access to alcohol
  • Experiencing symptoms of withdrawal when you rapidly stop or decrease drinking

Over time, alcoholism can take a toll on your health. Excessive alcohol use can lead to heart problems, liver disease, bone damage, nutritional deficiencies, neurological complications and increase your risk of cancer.

Fortunately, there are effective treatment methods for an alcohol use disorder that can improve the quality of your life. At Jackson House Addiction Treatment & Recovery Center, our team uses proven techniques to help individuals learn to live without needing alcohol.
