THE WIDESPREAD COST OF ALCOHOL ADDICTION

The physical, psychological and financial toll that alcohol use disorder takes on individual sufferers, and the country as a whole, is nothing short of staggering. In addition to the nearly 90.000 alcohol-related fatalities that occur in the country each year, alcohol use disorder leads to a number of physical diseases like cirrhosis of the liver, fetal alcohol spectrum disorders, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, stroke, liver cirrhosis, several types of cancer and infections, pancreatitis, type 2 diabetes, and various injuries. Alcohol use disorder also drives high-risk and harmful behavior like drunk-driving, physical assault, intimate-partner violence and other crimes. Alcohol use disorder also destroys families, careers and families every day.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 10,497 people died in alcohol-impaired crashes in 2016, up 1.7 percent from 10,320 in 2015. These deaths accounted for 28 percent of all crash fatalities. The public-health ramifications of alcohol use disorder go far beyond drunk and impaired driving. Alcohol often lowers potential criminal offenders’ inhibitions or heightens their desperation to the point at which they feel more emboldened to commit crimes like assault, burglary or armed robbery. The disease can also lead or significantly contribute to mental disorders like depression, anxiety, PTSD and more. When alcoholism and mental disorder are linked, patients need treatment that simultaneously addresses both conditions.

TREATING ALCOHOL USE DISORDER

Treatment for alcohol use disorder, at any level, must address the immediate physical dangers and long-term impact of the disease. This means medically supervised detox and withdrawal management followed by in-depth rehab behavioral analysis to address the root causes of the drinking. Alcohol rehab should focus on helping patients build behavioral coping mechanisms that allow them to protect themselves from relapse when they leave treatment, as well as repair the long-term lifestyle damage that they patient has suffered in the wake of their untreated and prolonged alcohol abuse. This can include family involvement, life skills development and more. Many alcoholics often go years without getting the help they need and lose everything as a result. Alcoholism can affect everyone, regardless of cultural background or economic status.
