Social drinking. Heavy drinking. Binge drinking. Problem drinking. All of these classifications have different definitions, but they do not necessarily mean a person is an alcoholic. So, how can you tell if a person you care about is suffering from alcoholism? Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to know for sure. However, there are a few telltale signs that you may be overlooking.
While drinking alone or experiencing blackouts are clear signs of alcohol abuse, they do not necessarily show that your loved one is physically or psychologically addicted. Combine these behaviors with the three alcohol addiction warning signs above, though, and the likelihood of a clinically diagnosable addiction increases dramatically.
Whether your loved one is technically addicted to alcohol or not, it’s important to remember that things can quickly get worse. So if you notice these warning signs of alcoholism, you ultimately have a couple of choices: You can do nothing and hope that the problem goes away on its on (it won’t). Or, you can reach out to your loved one with love and support. Learn more about alcohol addiction rehab or call Legacy Healing Center today to speak with an admissions expert.
