The First Step to
A Better Life
An estimated 17.6 million Americans struggle with alcohol abuse or dependence, making it the most commonly used addictive substance in the country. Additionally, more than half of adults have a family history of alcoholism.
Alcohol abuse will affect every aspect of a person’s life, and long-term use poses serious risks to a person’s physical health, leading to neurological impairments, cardiovascular problems and several types of cancer. This kind of addiction also affects a person’s mental health, their interpersonal relationships and their career.
Alcohol can hold a powerful grip on a person, and if he or she is ready to get sober, a medically-supervised detox is absolutely necessary. Trying to detox from alcohol at home is just plain dangerous.
