Alcohol Abuse Facts

Facts about alcohol abuse are given in order to help alcoholics and their loved ones be aware of the fatal side effects of alcohol.  Abuse of alcohol occurs when a person uses alcohol in a risky situation or if he or she does things such as binge drinking, weekend-long partying, and drinking as a way to escape life.

Alcohol abuse is not something to take lightly; it is a drug and has many of the same effects that drugs do on a person and their mind.  Best Drug Rehabilitation offers help to those individuals who have become addicted to alcohol and are facing possible life-threatening side effects due to alcohol abuse.
