Here at No1Down, we care about people suffering from all forms of addiction. Whether your loved one’s life is consumed by alcohol or cocaine, or something as normalized as pornography...we are here to offer a helping hand. This blog post focuses specifically on alcohol and what it means to have an alcohol addiction. While the signs are sometimes subtle, an addiction to alcohol can send someone spiraling from carefree to consumed in mere months.
Check out this Infographic from Alo House Recovery Centers. It depicts the mental and physical effects that alcohol has on an individual. From puffy faces to popped blood vessels, alcohol can cause more than just a hangover.
Not only does alcohol do damage to the body and mind, but it’s a dangerous addiction to recover from. An alcoholic is the only type of recovering addict at risk of death from withdrawal. When you drink that much that often, your body comes to rely on alcohol...and the lack of it can actually kill you. Most rehabilitation centers won’t take recovering alcoholics until they’ve visited a hospital first.
If you or a loved one is suffering from alcohol addiction, there are resources that can help you. No1Down will continue to support rehabilitation centers in order to ease the pains of addiction, whether financial or physical.
