Alcoholism Warning Signs : Rehab Spot

Alcoholism, or an Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD), is one of the most common addictions in the US. In 2019, nearly 15 million Americans struggled with an AUD. Among this group, there are an estimated 95,000 alcohol-related deaths per year. With a problem this big and this serious, it is important to know what alcoholism warning signs are.

Common indicators of alcoholism include the frequency of drinks and the lack of control over their alcohol intake. Many who drink to the point of intoxication are not alcoholics, although the symptoms of both can be similar. Because of this, it is often difficult for friends and family (and even alcoholics themselves) to determine if alcoholism is a genuine concern. (Source: Rehab Spot)
