Alcohol abuse and addiction continues to be the most pervasive and widespread addiction problem in the world. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), over 15 million adults suffered from some sort of alcohol use disorder (AUD) in 2015, this includes nearly 10 million men and over five million women. Of the nearly 10 million adults who needed treatment, only 1.3 million actually received care from a specialized facility. An estimated 88,000 people (approximately 62,000 men and 26,000 women) die from alcohol-related causes annually, making alcohol the fourth leading preventable cause of death in the United States. RU Encore is ready to help you or your loved one overcome alcohol abuse or addiction through comprehensive music-based treatment. Call us today at 844-25-MUSIC.
The Damage Done
High Cost of Alcohol Addiction
It’s not an exaggeration to say that prolonged and untreated alcohol abuse impacts literally every aspect of a person’s existence, including their health, their careers, relationships with their families and overall quality of life. Some of the immediate effects of alcohol abuse include liver damage, brain shrinkage, muscle and joint pain, stomach distress, heart damage, lung infections, frequent diarrhea and more. Behavioral changes can include depression, memory impairment, hallucinations, impaired decision-making, aggression and more. If you or a loved one is one of the millions of Americans currently suffering from alcohol use disorder, it’s imperative that you get help now to diminish the prospect of any further damage.
Alcoholism can form through a variety of different circumstances. Some develop alcohol addiction because they drank to self-medicate from a traumatic experience and just never stopped; others may be genetically pre-disposed to it; others may have had alcoholic parents and are unwittingly continuing the cycle. The longer alcohol abuse is allowed to persist, the worse symptoms and lifestyle damage is likely to get.
