Alcohol in some form is an ancient substance that’s been made since prehistoric times, with Mead likely being the first alcohol. Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant that causes euphoria and slowed perception in the user. While it doesn’t affect everyone the same, unchecked alcohol abuse can lead to a host of negative effects on the human body.
A large amount of alcohol consumption over a long period can cause liver damage, cancer, a large amount of other conditions, and/or a severely impairing dependence. If you’re underage, you may have to deal with legal ramifications depending on the situation.
Alcohol can lead to putting yourself at greater risk of contracting STDs through inducing risky sexual behavior while under the influence. Alcohol-induced accidents and drunk driving can kill you and others.
In Indiana, alcohol is the most used and abused substance of choice. According to Indiana University, around 50% of the state’s population above the age of 12 consumes alcohol in any given month. 60% of 18 to 25 year old individuals drink alcohol in any given month, giving this group the rank of most consuming of all Hoosiers. Just over 6% of Indiana residents heavily drink (6.5% of US citizens participate in heavy drinking), with 28% of all treatment facility admissions being admitted for an alcohol dependence. Between 2007 and 2017, statewide alcohol consumption cost consumers around $4.4 billion dollars USD. In 2019, there were 7,213 drunk driving accidents.
Treatment for alcohol use disorder can take many different forms, including medication-assisted treatment. Praxis offers multiple different treatment paths to match the level of care you need as a patient. This can take the form of either residential or outpatient treatment, with therapy and counseling offered as part of the process.
