Are you dependent on alcohol?

Your drinking may already be a problem if you’re experiencing the symptoms shown below. The more symptoms you’re experiencing, the higher the chance you’re already dependent.

When someone drinks large quantities of alcohol on a regular basis, their body gradually develops a tolerance/resistance to it. This means that they will need to consume more to feel the same effects they used to get from a lesser amount.

The symptoms that someone experiences when they suddenly stop drinking alcohol after a period of heavy and prolonged drinking. Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can vary widely in severity. In some cases, they can even be life-threatening. Symptoms may include headaches, nausea, tremors, anxiety, hallucinations and seizures

Co-Occurring Disorders &
Alcoholism

Someone is considered dual diagnosis or said to have a co-occurring disorder if they suffer from a mental health issue and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) at the same time.

Nearly a 3rd of American adults are considered exessive drinkers

Research shows that approximately 8 million Americans suffer from a co-occurring disorder. Many people who suffer from alcohol use disorder also suffer from mental health issues like depression and anxiety People often drink alcohol to help cope with the symptoms of mental health conditions. However, alcohol can actually worsen these symptoms.

How is a co-occurring disorder treated?

The most effective way to treat a dual diagnosis is with Integrated Treatment. This is when an individual receives care for both alcohol dependence and their mental health condition at the same time
