Alcohol Abuse and Addiction  

Alcohol Abuse and Addiction
Despite its legality in the United States, alcohol is a highly addictive drug that millions abuse each year. Although some argue it has health benefits when consumed in moderation, research shows only two in every 100 people who drinks alcohol does so in moderation. The remaining drinking population often indulges in binge drinking, or drinking large amounts of alcohol in a short period of time, in order to get drunk. If a person experiences cravings for alcohol and cannot stop consuming it, they are likely experiencing alcohol addiction, or alcoholism. Alcoholism is a medical disorder, and drug addiction rehab is proven to treat the condition.
