Alcohol dependence is the inability to control when, where and how much someone drinks. This lack of control is the disease of addiction that can be both physical and emotional dependence on alcohol. Studies show that entering an alcohol addiction treatment program increases the chances of a complete, long-term recovery from alcohol addiction. Accepting an invitation to change is by far the biggest step on the path to recovery.
Alcohol comes with such social acceptance and often high-regard that it can be one of the hardest of all drugs to realize that someone has a problem. Drinking is an entrenched part of our society, which can make it hard to imagine life without it.
Often times, when alcohol use becomes dangerous is when the behavior affects the quality of life of the individual and his or her family, friends, and colleagues. It can have legal and financial complications like drunk driving and related accidents, loss of work, and other impacts.
