The Dangers of Alcoholism

Despite being a legal substance, alcohol is one of the most destructive influences in society today. Many individuals and their families have seen their lives torn apart by a pernicious addiction to alcohol. And despite the rising number of alcohol treatment centers across the country, alcoholism continues to be a serious issue, (in large part because many refuse to see it as a problem). Alcoholism contributes to divorce, domestic abuse and even death, showing that an alcohol addiction not only causes harm to the user, but also to those who care about them the most. Here are just a few of the dangers of alcoholism.
