Alcoholism is an epidemic in society today, and is a problem facing many in Houma, LA. Alcohol is in fact a drug, the most commonly used and widely abused in the world. Alcohol addiction causes many problems, and people that abuse alcohol are more likely to become violent, struggle with their career and have problems in their relationships. Alcoholism can literally destroy your life.

Consuming alcohol is a common and acceptable practice in Houma. The problem with alcohol addiction and alcoholism begins when consumption crosses the line from moderate drinking, to having to consume alcohol to avoid feeling bad or to feel comfortable in social situations. Alcohol addiction and alcoholism may be triggered by an individual's environment, the people he's associating with, etc. Whatever the case may be, if alcohol is being used in excess and an individual doesn't have enough control to put down that drink despite the consequences, there is a problem.

It may seem easier to pretend that nothing is wrong, but the longer a person continues his addictive behavior the worse off he will be in the long run.

  • College campuses have a reputation for episodes of rapid binge drinking (which often happens on a bet or a dare); this type of drinking is especially dangerous because the victim can ingest a fatal dose of alcohol before they become unconscious.
  • Although alcoholism can be treated and long-term sobriety obtained, the recovered person must realize that they do not have the ability to control their alcohol intake after completing treatment. In other words, even if an alcoholic has been sober for a long time and has regained health, he or she remains susceptible to relapse and must continue to avoid all alcoholic beverages. "Cutting down" on drinking doesn't work; cutting out alcohol is necessary for a successful recovery.
