Alcohol abuse affects tens of millions of Americans. It’s estimated that 4% of the US population (about 12 million people) suffer from alcoholism, and an additional 4% are alcohol abusers.
The general population is not aware of just how serious the health issues associated with alcohol abuse can be, specifically the dangerous consequences of alcohol withdrawal. Alcoholics themselves underestimate the dangers of alcohol abuse, as only 10% of alcoholics seek any type of treatment.
When an alcoholic stops drinking alcohol heavily, withdrawal sets in. The symptoms of withdrawal are painful and potentially life-threatening. Alcohol Detox rids the body of contaminants; this can be a very difficult process and should be supervised by qualified addiction professionals.
