Alcohol abuse and addiction

Alcohol Abuse and Dependency

The Most Common Type of Addiction

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.
