What is Alcoholism?

What Exactly Is


Alcoholism, or alcohol use disorder (AUD), is classified by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) as a chronic brain disease that involves compulsive drinking and withdrawal symptoms when not using alcohol. More than 14.4 million Americans over the age of 18 struggle with alcoholism, according to a 2018 study, as well as around 400,000 youth aged 12 to 17.

How Exactly Does
Alcoholism Develop?

There are a variety of factors that can contribute to alcohol addiction. Family history can play an important role. Due to genetics, if you have a parent or relative who is an alcoholic, you’re at a higher risk of alcoholism.

Other factors that can contribute to excessive drinking and alcoholism include:

  • Drinking at a young age: Individuals who began drinking in their youth are more likely to develop an addiction to alcohol as they age
  • Early childhood trauma: People with a history of childhood trauma, such as abuse or neglect, are vulnerable to using alcohol as a coping mechanism when they get older
  • Mental health problems: Mental disorders like bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety, and depression increase the risk of alcoholism, and the two problems can exacerbate one another.

Individuals are at higher risk of developing alcoholism if they live in a culture or family where alcohol use and binge drinking are common and widely accepted. People who struggle with stress and low self-esteem are also more likely to drink in order to cope.

Signs That Someone Has a Drinking Problem

Signs & Symptoms of
Alcohol Addiction.

Despite how TV shows and movies depict alcoholics, it’s not always obvious to determine whether someone has a problem with alcohol addiction. It’s important to understand the behaviors and symptoms of alcoholism so you can seek help if you suffer from alcoholism or knows someone who does.

People with alcohol use disorder may experience symptoms including withdrawal when not drinking, such as nausea, vomiting, shaking, and depression or anxiety. They may also develop tremors, alcohol cravings, and lapses in memory after excessive drinking.

Common behaviors associated with people who are addicted to alcohol include:

When people develop an addiction to alcohol, their motivations are increasingly tied to it, which is why many people struggle to hold down a job or maintain their relationships. As a result, people struggling with alcoholism tend to have turbulent lives, though it’s worth mentioning that many Americans can be considered high-functioning alcoholics and are able to appear “normal.” Just because someone seems normal, though, doesn’t mean their addiction isn’t dangerous.

What to Expect During
an Ohio Alcohol Rehab Program?

Everyone’s rehab experience will be different based on their individual needs. Depending on the severity of your addiction, we may begin treatment with a medically-supervised alcohol detox program so we can closely monitor your body’s response to withdrawal. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in Cincinnati can help you physically and emotionally during the detox phase as you adjust to not having alcohol in your system.

Once detox is completed, the next phase of treatment will typically involve a combination of traditional talk therapies and holistic activities designed to help you replace destructive habits with healthy ones. Some of the various therapies we use to treat alcoholism at our state-of-the-art facilities include:

Your recovery journey does not end once your stay at our campus is completed. We ensure all our clients have access to relapse prevention resources and quality support necessary to help you stay on track.

Answering Your Questions About Alcohol Abuse

What to Expect From Alcohol Rehab in Ohio

If you find yourself overwhelmed with questions relating to alcoholism or rehab, you’re not alone. It’s natural to feel anxious about seeking help when your future seems so uncertain. Fortunately, our team has provided a list of some commonly asked questions and answers; if you have more specific questions, we’re happy to answer them when you give us a call at 1-866-902-2994.


Why Can’t Someone with Alcoholism Just Stop Drinking or Drink Less?

Addiction isn’t just a behavioral issue—it affects your brain chemistry over time, too, and is the reason why many people refer to it as a disease. This means that even if someone with alcoholism knows that their drinking is creating issues, it can be challenging for them to change their habits on their own without help. Individuals who check into rehab can address this issue and gain skills through therapy so they can work on changing their behaviors over time, but this doesn’t happen overnight.

Do I Need Help If I Can Still Function Normally?

One of the most common misconceptions is that you have to have hit rock bottom in order to seek professional help. There are plenty of people who can benefit from rehab, including people that are high-functioning alcoholics. Just because you can manage your drinking with your responsibilities and obligations now doesn’t mean that you’re “okay” or that you’ll be able to in the future. Getting sober is always better sooner rather than later—it can even save your life.

What’s the Difference Between Alcohol Abuse and Addiction?

Some people use abuse and addiction interchangeably, but alcohol abuse and alcoholism are two different things. Alcohol abuse commonly begins first and involves frequent drinking, but the person affected may still be able to stop drinking for long periods of time if they want. Abuse develops into addiction when the drinking continues to the point where the individual can no longer stop drinking. Over time, tolerance builds and the drinker needs to consume more alcohol to achieve the same euphoric or numbing feelings, which is how addiction develops.

How Do I Rebuild Relationships Damaged By Alcohol Addiction?

Alcohol addiction can often cause damage to personal relationships with friends, family, and loved ones. A person who struggles with drinking may lash out, become reclusive, lie, or act aggressively towards those close to them. However, it is important to not lose hope. Through family therapy, group therapy and other programs, our professionals can help you learn healthy communication skills to help you reconnect and heal damaged relationships.

How Long Does Alcohol Rehab Take?

This is a question we get asked all the time. Many people wish there was a cure that could instantly fix their alcohol addiction and solve all the issues that have arisen because of it. In reality, recovery is a lifelong journey with no end-date, and it’s a journey that requires patience, forgiveness, hard work, and self-compassion. You may even make mistakes from time to time, which is to be expected. Every person's journey to recovery will be unique and may take a different amount of time before they achieve lasting sobriety. This is why comparison can be discouraging and counterproductive for someone in recovery.

What Can I Do for Someone Who Has a Drinking Problem?

If you suspect a loved one has a drinking problem, it’s important to not enable their drinking. Some family members actually cause more harm than good when they lend money to the individual, for example, or when they make excuses for their behavior. Confronting your loved one in a gentle way is important if you want to help them get professional assistance, but it’s just as important that you don’t shame them for their addiction. By seeking to understand while withholding judgment, you can create a safe space for your loved ones and make them feel loved—not policed.

Why Can’t I Detox from Alcohol on My Own?

If you have a drinking problem, you may think you can quit on your own cold turkey. However, it’s highly recommended that you instead seek an alcohol detox program from a professional facility, where your withdrawal symptoms can be monitored. Detoxing on your own can be uncomfortable at best and dangerous at worst, especially because every person experiences withdrawal differently and you don’t know how your body may respond. A facility can also prescribe medications to ease the detoxification process and make you feel more comfortable.

Is Alcohol Rehab Covered By Insurance?

In many cases, yes. Most major health insurance plans offer coverage for addiction treatment services including alcohol rehab, though specific coverage will vary depending on the specific details of your policy. Our facility's friendly admissions specialists can confirm if your insurance policy is accepted and help determine if our programs are right for you.
