Finding Help for an Alcohol Use Disorder

If you suspect that you have an alcohol disorder and have had complications due to your alcohol use, it helps to know the trouble signs so you can make a change early. An alcohol use disorder is defined by The National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism as a “medical condition that doctors can diagnose when a patient’s drinking causes distress or harm.”

Alcohol use disorders can become complicated and alcoholism changes the way we approach issues by creating havoc in our thought patterns and how we react to circumstances.

Trouble signs for an alcohol use disorder may be indicated by the following:

  • Drinking more or longer than intended.
  • Inability to stop or cut down on drinking.
  • Developed a tolerance where more alcohol is needed to feel the same effects.
  • Had memory blackouts.
  • Continued drinking although it made you anxious or depressed.
  • Given up or cut back on activities that are important to you.
  • Complication in social, family, or work environments.
  • Caused or increased chances of harm to yourself or others while drinking such as driving, having unsafe sex, or using machinery.
  • Had withdrawals when drinking stopped or was reduced.
  • Been arrested or had legal problems because of your alcohol use.
