Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse

 

Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse is Still a Concern

Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse may not make headlines the way it used to, but it is still a constant concern in today’s society. Millions of people are affected every day. Alcohol abuse poses a threat to the people around the abuser and can put them in dangerous situations. Those who continue to abuse Alcohol and can still function in society pose a danger to themselves and others. The unfortunate truth is that when one is regularly consuming large quantities of alcohol, they are still impairing their actions and judgment.

Unfortunately, our society stereotypes an alcoholic as only someone who may have ‘hit rock bottom’ or is seen staggering around or even homeless. Yes, this may be true for some. But people today are dealing with high-pressure lifestyles and some unforgiving economic circumstances. In turn, creating high functioning alcoholics. Or those who can maintain jobs and relationships while displaying Alcoholism.  

Although now, Alcoholism is widely called “alcohol use disorder.” You’ll still hear many people talking about “alcoholism” or “alcohol abuse.” It’s a condition that ranges from mild to moderate to severe. And it’s all still problem drinking, even if you think it’s “mild.”

Preventing Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse in the Workplace

Many employers who employ ‘functioning alcoholics’ may not even realize it initially or at all. However, many companies are implementing a Drug-Free policy where they promote a zero-tolerance drug and alcohol-free environment. For companies that require regular use of heavy machinery and those in public safety, mandatory drug tests can be expected.
