An estimated 95,000 people die each year from alcohol-related causes. Alcohol is the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.
Alcohol Use Disorder is a disease where the individual is impaired in their ability to stop or control their drinking despite negative consequences surrounding their alcohol abuse. Those who struggle with alcohol abuse can find it impossible to resist the cravings and temptations to drink as alcohol is a legal psychoactive substance that is readily available. The consumption of alcohol is widely accepted by society and for many can pose no risk. For some however, alcohol brings about a series of adverse familial, social, occupational, legal, and health consequences. Yet despite these consequences, the individual cannot seem to control their drinking. Despite the severe health risks associated with alcoholism, the individual addicted to alcohol cannot stop their drinking. Even the withdrawal symptoms from alcohol can prove to be fatal if not medically supervised at a drug and alcohol detoxification facility. The individual addicted to alcohol needs help to overcome their urge and compulsion to drink. It is for this reason that the Sobriety Centers of New Hampshire offer an Alcohol Treatment Program at our Antrim, NH drug and alcohol rehab facility.
