Alcohol Abuse By The Numbers

Alcohol is one of the most commonly-abused addictive substances in the United States and has been for decades. This is not surprising considering how alcohol is ever-present in modern American culture. From restaurants and bars to social gatherings, family events, or even work or school functions, Americans are expected and sometimes encouraged to drink alcohol from a young age. Because of this “normalizing” of alcohol, it can be very difficult for a person to identify and admit when they have a drinking problem.

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

    • More than 14 million adults struggle with alcohol addiction in the United States, though only 8% will ever receive treatment.
    • More than 95,000 people die each year from excessive alcohol abuse. This translates to roughly 261 deaths per day.
    • Alcohol is the third-leading cause of preventable death in the United States, after tobacco and poor diet/exercise.
    • In 2010 (the last year this statistic was studied), excessive alcohol abuse cost the United States roughly $249 billion.

Signs Of Alcohol Addiction

Identifying alcohol addictions can be difficult because excessive drinking is so commonplace. It can be hard to identify when a person drinks more than the average person, and when a person actually has a problem.

A person may have a legitimate issue with alcohol if, in addition to drinking excessively, the person chooses to drink over engaging in other activities, drinks on their own a lot, or suffers from significant medical or financial problems due to their drinking.

Some other signs of alcohol addiction may include:

Blacking out

Alcohol poisoning

Isolating from friends and family

Hiding drinking

Mood swings

Constantly being drunk or hungover

Associating with certain people just to drink

Long-Term Effects Of Alcohol Addiction

Excessively drinking alcohol can cause significant damage to the internal organs and body systems. Drinking in general is not healthy, and the behavior only causes more issues if done in excess and over a long period of time.

The physical effects of long-term alcohol addiction may include:

    • Liver damage and cirrhosis
    • Kidney failure
    • Cancers of the throat, mouth, colon, esophagus, etc
    • High blood pressure
    • Heart disease
    • Stroke

Drinking excessively can damage the brain as well. A person who drinks a lot can experience memory loss, confusion, cognitive limitations, impaired decision making skills, anxiety, depression, and other mental issues.

In addition to the physical effects of alcoholism, excessive drinking can impact every area of a person’s life. A person who has a long-term struggle with alcohol addiction may experience financial issues.
