Alcohol Abuse Help
There are millions of people in America struggling with alcohol abuse. Alcohol abuse can have such a wide variation of definitions that it sometimes becomes wholly subjective. The different factors involved can include both amount and frequency of alcohol consumption, but also the circumstances surrounding alcohol and behavioral ramifications.
There are many possible indicators of alcohol abuse, which are often poor decisions made and their associated consequences. Alcohol abuse could include someone getting really drunk on a single occasion, or possibly heavy drinking on a routine basis. Prolonged periods of alcohol abuse can lead to someone becoming an alcoholic.
