What is Alcoholism?
Sometimes referred to as Alcohol Use Disorder, alcoholism involves the inability to control one’s drinking habits. Alcoholism is broken down into three categories, (mild, moderate, and severe), with each category becoming progressively worse than the previous one. Even so, some of the signs a person in any of the stages might exhibit include:
- Drinking more or longer than intended
- Trying to cut down on or stop drinking but being unable to do so
- Spending a great deal of money on alcohol
- Missing work due to a hangover
- Cutting back on certain activities just to spend more time drinking
- Continuing to drink even after learning about an alcohol-related health problem
- Suffering withdrawal symptoms, such as shakiness, sleeping problems, mood disorders, or restlessness
Individuals who exhibit three or more of these signs could be an alcoholic or at risk for becoming one. More than one million people seek professional treatment at a recovery center such as ours every year. Studies show that receiving such treatment greatly increases one’s odds of getting and staying sober.
Here at North Coast Recovery, we are proud to offer the following alcohol-related resources:
- About Alcoholism

What is Drug Addiction?
Drug addiction is a chronic disorder that involves compulsive drug use, whether legal or illegal. It is classified as a brain disease because many commonly abused drugs chemically alter the brain. Drug addiction has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, costing an estimated $193 billion in the way of healthcare costs, crime, and lost time from work.
Drug use is most common among individuals in their late teens and 20s but is also increasing among those in their 50s and 60s.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that more than 24.6 million Americans over the age of 12 used an illicit drug in 2013. Many casual drug users will eventually become addicted and require assistance from a treatment facility such as North Coast Recovery.
