What is Alcohol Abuse?
Alcohol abuse is a serious condition that can have significant impacts on a person’s life and the lives of those around them. Alcohol is a depressant and a psychoactive substance, primarily in a liquid form, that users consume for recreational and social purposes. While moderate alcohol consumption is generally considered safe, excessive alcohol use can lead to many negative consequences, including physical, mental, and social problems. Fortunately, there are effective treatments available for those struggling with alcohol abuse.
