Alcohol addiction and alcoholism are serious problems in Houma, LA. that must be addressed. Alcohol is used freely in our society, sometimes too freely. While normal alcohol consumption is very common and socially acceptable, it is still a drug.

If someone in Houma is consuming alcohol just to feel good or to avoid feeling bad, this is a sign of alcohol addiction or alcoholism. It's one thing to have a couple of drinks with friends.

The individual may be trying to self medicate with alcohol, instead of handling a stressful situation or confronting a problem. Whatever the case may be, he is only making his problems worse by adding alcohol to the equation.
