Alcohol Addiction FAQs

Is alcoholism inherited?

According to the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, genes are responsible for about half of the risk for alcohol use disorder. Research has found that people who are genetically predisposed to alcoholism have a higher risk of developing alcohol addiction. Though people can inherit alcoholic tendencies from their family members, the development of an addiction is also dependent on environmental factors. Additionally, some people with a family history of alcoholism never develop an alcohol use disorder.

Is alcoholism a disease?

Today, many researchers and rehab centers are recognizing alcoholism as a disease of the brain. When a person continues to abuse alcohol over time, their tolerance increases, meaning they need to drink more and more to feel the same effects. This effectively alters a person’s brain chemistry, and once the brain has been affected by a substance, willpower often isn’t enough to get a person to quit drinking. People with alcohol addictions often feel powerless and unable to “just quit,” despite knowing how alcohol has negatively impacted their lives.

If an alcoholic is unwilling to get help, what can I do about it?

If your loved one is refusing professional treatment for their alcoholism, it’s important to not despair or give up. Even if your friend or family member is pushing you away, they need the support of their loved ones now more than ever. Some of the best things you can do during this time are to educate yourself about alcoholism, stop funding your loved one’s drinking habits or enabling them, and let them know you’re there for them no matter what. Many individuals with addictions are unwilling to admit they need help because they feel guilty or ashamed; by creating a supportive and non-judgmental environment, you can help them come to terms with their problem.

What is a safe level of drinking?

Drinking less is better for your health than drinking more. According to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, drinking in moderation is defined as limiting one’s intake to two drinks or less in a day for men and one drink or less in a day for women. Alcohol consumption can quickly become a problem when binge drinking is involved, which is defined as alcohol consumption that brings one’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level to .08% or more.
