Beer, wine, and liquor are all commonly consumed forms of alcohol in the US. Excessive consumption of alcohol can cause health problems like some form of liver damage in the long term. 15 million Americans have an issue with alcohol that the CDC would consider excessive drinking—anything more than a couple of drinks per day.
Binge and heavy drinking are both defined forms of excessive alcohol consumption. Binging alcohol is when more than 4 drinks are consumed in a 2-hour period. Heavy drinking is 15+ drinks for men or 8+ drinks for women in a single week. Heavy drinking over a long period is most dangerous for the user.
About 95,000 people die every year from alcohol-related causes. Alcohol is a fine substance to drink if moderation is the key. If moderation is key, then a healthy relationship with alcohol can be maintained.
In Virginia, alcohol use hovers around 55% for all age groups above 18 years of age. In terms of alcohol binging, about 22% of all Virginians above the age of 12 participate in this harmful behavior. The worst offending group are those between the ages of 18 to 25, who drink at a rate of 58.33% and binge drink at a rate of 36.08%.
Just over 16% of residents excessively drink in Virginia, making it the 15th most sober state in the country. Being a mostly sober state doesn’t make it zero percent drunk, though. About 5% of all Virginians have an alcohol use disorder, and 5.26% need treatment but simply won’t seek it out. If you’re struggling with a dependence on alcohol, don’t be afraid to reach out—we don’t judge at all.
At Landmark Recovery, we offer both residential and outpatient services depending on your level of medical need during alcohol recovery. 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous are available at our facilities to patients, in addition to multiple types of therapy and counseling. We want to maximize your recovery gains while you’re here, but we also make an alumni program for Landmark Recovery graduates available on a national level.
Treatment for alcohol dependence can be medication-assisted (MAT) or take the form of traditional treatment. You may be offered different types of MAT, including the Sinclair Method, in which you take a pill shortly before being in a situation where alcohol may be present. Recovery is possible.
