Anyone can be at risk to struggle with alcohol dependency, however there are some factors that have been proven to increase those odds. Gender, ethnicity, education level, family history and the age at which alcohol was first consumed can all play a part in one’s risk for alcoholism.

While these studies have no conclusive evidence as to why these variables affect the likelihood of one becoming alcohol-dependent, they are important to note.

As 28 percent of adults in the U.S. drink enough alcohol to be at risk for dependency, you or someone in your life may be struggling. Remember that alcohol rehab centers can offer the necessary support to overcoming alcoholism and beating the odds.
