Alcoholism, alcohol addiction and alcohol dependence are basically the same type of alcohol problem. Alcohol abuse, however, is different than these three. Alcohol abuse is when someone drinks too much alcohol at a given time, such as in a social setting. This individual is not necessarily an alcoholic or addicted to alcohol. While not as detrimental as alcoholism, alcohol abuse may lead to drunk-driving arrests or accidents, drinking-related medical conditions and an inability to handle one's home, work or school responsibilities. Alcohol abuse should be taken extremely seriously.
With alcohol abuse, the intense cravings found with alcoholism are not evident. A person can be considered to be suffering from alcohol abuse when he or she has experienced one or more of the following situations within a 12-month period:
The effects of alcohol abuse can be quite sobering. In fact, nearly 100,000 Americans die each year as a direct result of alcohol abuse. It also plays a huge role in social and domestic problems such as, crimes like child or spouse abuse and property damage as well as job absenteeism.
In most cases, addiction to prescription medication is the direct result of the medication being appropriately prescribed for legitimate medical problems. The person rarely had any preconceived plans to abuse the medication, but two factors come into play. The individual may experience some relief from the drug, in conjunction with experiencing the euphoric feeling produced by many prescription medications. Whether it is due to the reduction in pain or an elevation in pleasurable feelings, the person begins to take additional medication. This decision is usually made independent of the physician who prescribed the medication and before the person realizes it, they find themselves with a mental obsession regarding the medication and a craving for more.
People have also been known to take prescription medication to deal with emotional problems. The only thing most of these medications do for emotional problems are "mask or numb" the actual feelings. Although the person may not experience the feeling or focus on the problem at a particular moment, in most cases, the problem is just exasperated by not learning how to effectively cope with the particular issue.
Lastly, people have been found to mix alcohol with prescription medications to accentuate the feeling of euphoria. They like to refer to this mixture as a "cocktail". What this creates is the potential for an overdose and should be avoided at all costs. If you require additional information on prescription medication addiction or need to locate a treatment center able to effectively treat this problem, please call Affordable Rehab of Highland Heights at call (216) 200-7410 and we will be more than happy to assist you.
While the initial trials showed promising results, meth vaccine development is still in its early stages, and several challenges exist. For instance, the vaccine is not as long lasting as they should be for a successful meth addiction treatment. The effects subside after a few weeks, while addiction treatment can extend over a couple of years. A more significant question is whether the vaccine can reduce cravings or not. This same question is also being asked by researchers of cocaine and nicotine vaccines.
