  • When a person begins the process of recovery from alcoholism, they will have to deal with these causes of alcoholism and they will have to learn new ways to cope with environmental factors such as stress and depression.
  • Alcoholics, do not process alcohol as effectively as non-alcoholics. The alcoholicís liver converts alcohol into acetaldehyde at twice the normal rate. At the same time, their ability to convert acetaldehyde into acetic acid is much slower than non-alcoholics. Consequently, the higher concentrations of acetaldehyde can damage liver cells, cause inflammation and exhaust the bodyís immune system. The liverís ability to absorb nutrients is compromised. Unfortunately, the damage is not restricted to the liver. An abundance of acetaldehyde will eventually enter the bloodstream which can affect other organs in the body such as the heart or pancreas. It can also affect the brain. The brain, like most body organs, is vulnerable to injury from alcohol consumption. Acetaldehyde can block proper brain function such as the firing of neurotransmitters which affect oneís mood, memory, and behavior.
  • One third of suicides are associated with alcohol abuse.
  • During 2001-2005, excessive alcohol use was the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.
