Risks of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse
Alcohol plays a complex role in many physical illnesses, health complications, and psychological disorders. The best known effect of alcohol and drug addiction is liver damage, such as steatosis (fatty liver), alcoholic hepatitis (liver inflammation), fibrosis (formation of excessive tissue in the liver), and cirrhosis (hardening). The liver processes and cleanses toxins from the body, so a non-functioning liver cause a slow and painful death. Many other organs are at risk as well, including the pancreas, which can produce toxic substances in the presence of alcohol, leading to pancreatitis. Cancers of the mouth, esophagus, throat, liver, and breasts are a common consequence of alcohol consumption. Additionally, drinking – even binge drinking on a single occasion – cripples the immune system and can make users prone to illnesses like pneumonia and infection. Heart damage, stretching of the heart muscle, irregular heartbeat, and stroke are also not uncommon medical conditions that alcoholics and alcohol abusers suffer from.
The mind can also be adversely affected by alcohol use. Even occasionally drinking too much (binging) has unwanted side effects, such as:
- reduced inhibitions
- motor impairment
- breathing complications
Alcohol has many adverse consequences on the body, and alcohol use disorders often accompany other disorders. Alcohol Addiction Treatment Washington, DC offers rehabilitation aimed at addressing all aspects of alcohol use including other psychological issues compounded by alcohol use disorders.
Other dangers of drinking are:
- automotive accidents
- violent and dangerous habits

How Hope Addiction Rehab Services Will Help
Detox is sometimes an important process, but whether or not detox is required before rehab can begin depends on the seriousness of the alcohol use disorder. Detoxing without medical assistance is very hazardous for profound alcoholics, and can be life-threatening. Consequences of withdrawing from alcohol can vary from moderate to severe, including:
- trouble sleeping
- pupils of different sizes
- black outs
With the assistance of Alcohol Detox Centers‘ skilled medical staff, alcoholics can detoxify in a controlled environment. Detoxification must be utilized to help the addict withdraw from their substance of abuse, and shouldn’t be confused with treatment. Treatment, or rehab, is the only way that an addict can truly recover from an alcohol use disorder.
