Alcohol Dependence & Abuse Counseling

The terminology varies; abuse, addiction, alcoholism, dependence, problem drinker, functioning alcoholic, yet all result in problems

The definition is clear; alcohol dependence can be defined as drinking alcoholic beverages in a manner that causes problems with physical health, mental health and social/family or job/school responsibilities.

Once in the depths of alcoholism, an individual has great difficulty breaking through the denial to achieve change or help. Typically an alcoholic experiences some form of “hurt” before their addiction becomes obvious to them. Unfortunately their friends, family usually have already noticed or experienced the problem. Again these mishaps can range from “seemingly” minor situation to a major event.

The concept of reaching one’s “bottom” is different for everybody and a choice does exist as to how much suffering is endured
