What Is Alcohol Use Disorder?
As the name suggests, alcohol use disorder is an unhealthy relationship with alcohol. Alcohol use disorder and addiction usually begin with alcohol abuse. Alcohol abuse occurs when someone continues drinking despite negative consequences. This might include hangovers that get in the way of daily life, unsafe or reckless behavior, and when drinking gets in the way of work, family, or school. Signs of alcohol use disorder include:
- Bloodshot eyes
- Craving alcohol
- Mood swings
- Profuse sweating
- Weight loss
- Changes in sleep habits
Alcohol is a depressive. It works by slowing down messages from the brain to the body. This causes slurred speech, loss of balance, and memory problems. Over time, alcohol use disorder can increase depression and anxiety. When someone craves alcohol, their brain and body have developed a dependency. This means their brain needs alcohol to perform certain chemical functions. When this happens, alcohol rehab is the safest, most effective way to address the root causes of drinking and the symptoms of alcohol use disorder.
Unfortunately, once an alcohol use disorder has developed, it can be difficult and dangerous to stop drinking without professional psychiatric support.
