Alcohol is a drug that’s primarily drunk by users via some form of liquor, beer, or wine. Excessive consumption can cause dangerous health complications like liver disease. Alcohol use disorders don’t discriminate, as around 15 million Americans have one. The CDC defines anything beyond a couple of drinks a day as excessive drinking.
Binge drinking, the second-worst kind of consumption, is the ingestion of 4 or more drinks in a two-hour period. Heavy drinking is the worst form, in which at least 15 drinks are consumed by males and 8 are consumed by females. This form can affect the drinker over a long period in which symptoms and health complications can compound over time.
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 rehab. The root causes of addiction should be addressed and treated properly in a holistic environment, which is why we offer therapy and counseling. Alcoholics Anonymous is available at our facilities for your needs to ensure you have the proper support during your time with us. We offer a national alumni program to ensure you maintain your sobriety after leaving our care.
Medication-assisted treatment is available for patients with severe withdrawal symptoms during alcohol rehab. Different types of MAT may be available to patients, including the Sinclair Method, in which you take a pill shortly before being in a situation where alcohol may be present and you might be tempted to drink.
