Need Treatment For Alcohol Addiction In Guildford?

Alcohol is the easiest substance to abuse, because it’s so easy to get hold of. Put simply, it’s legal and it’s available anywhere.

Drink is also a part of our social lives and therefore an addiction is much more likely to go unnoticed. While many people can drink recreationally and not get addicted, others end up using it to mask emotional problems.

The NHS estimates around 9% of men and 4% of women show signs of alcohol dependence.

Problems with alcohol can be passed on: if parents are heavy drinkers, then children are much more likely to abuse alcohol. However, it’s also linked to depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and other psychiatric disorders.  At the bottom of any alcohol addiction, there is almost always pain. Healing that pain is essential to moving on in life.

Alcohol addiction can lead to wide number of different health problems, including high blood pressure, strokes, coronary heart disease and liver disease. Long-term use will lead to the liver becoming scarred and prevented from working properly.
