Alcohol dependence is one of the most prevalent addictions in the world especially when you take into consideration it is legal to purchase and is available almost everywhere. In addition to being “socially acceptable”, alcohol is not looked at as a drug although the long term health effects of alcohol can cause a multitude of mental, physical and social consequences. Individuals suffering from alcohol dependence often feel shame around this and can have a difficult time reaching out for help, but help is available.
Alcohol withdrawal is a potentially life-threatening situation that must be treated in a medically supervised setting. Discontinuation of alcohol is not often recognized as being potentially lethal, but it is. Individuals dependent on alcohol who stop use can experience:
Auditory / Visual hallucinations
Elevated heart rates and blood pressure
Confusion, at times extreme
