  • The type of treatment one receives for their alcohol dependence problems depends on the severity of their alcohol problem and the resources that are available in their community. Treatment may include detoxification (the process of safely getting alcohol out of your system); taking doctor-prescribed medications, such as disulfiram (AntabuseÆ) or naltrexone (ReVia), to help prevent a return (or relapse) to drinking once drinking has stopped; and individual and/or group counseling.
  • Alcoholics, do not process alcohol as effectively as non-alcoholics. The alcoholicís liver converts alcohol into acetaldehyde at twice the normal rate. At the same time, their ability to convert acetaldehyde into acetic acid is much slower than non-alcoholics. Consequently, the higher concentrations of acetaldehyde can damage liver cells, cause inflammation and exhaust the bodyís immune system. The liverís ability to absorb nutrients is compromised. Unfortunately, the damage is not restricted to the liver. An abundance of acetaldehyde will eventually enter the bloodstream which can affect other organs in the body such as the heart or pancreas. It can also affect the brain. The brain, like most body organs, is vulnerable to injury from alcohol consumption. Acetaldehyde can block proper brain function such as the firing of neurotransmitters which affect oneís mood, memory, and behavior.
  • The risk of youth experiencing alcohol associated problems is greater for those who binge drink than for those who do not binge drink.
