Understanding the Different Types of Alcohol Addictions

There are different types of alcohol use disorders, which vary in terms of habits and severity. It is important to understand these differences when applied to alcohol treatment.

Binge drinking

Binge drinking is most common for individuals between the ages of 18-21, but can occur at any age. This type of addiction is classified as having more drinks in one session than the body can process effectively. For women, it’s more than 3 drinks, for men, it’s more than 5 drinks.
The consequences of binge drinking can result in school or work absenteeism, poor academic or work performance, hangovers, memory loss, and risky behavior which may result in injury, assault, or impulsive sexual activity.

Alcohol Abuse

Alcohol abuse occurs when an individual is drinking too much or too often, and negative effects on their life begin to manifest.
These effects may include impaired driving, neglect of daily responsibilities including work and family, strained relationships, and legal/financial problems related to alcohol misuse.

Alcohol Addiction or Alcohol Dependence

Alcohol addicts incur the same problems as abusers, but they have the added symptom of dependence. This means that is especially difficult to cut back or quit, as it results in serious and sometimes deadly withdrawal effects including cravings, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideations, shakiness, tremors, and seizures.
