Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a condition where people consume alcohol compulsively despite its negative effects. People are diagnosed with AUD by reaching two or three of 11 conditions for a span of one year according to the American Psychiatric Association. Based on how many standards have been met, AUD can be mild, moderate, or extreme. Daily binge drinking, interpersonal issues, social pressure, poor self-esteem, multiple forms of violence, and easy access to alcohol are all causes for AUD. Millions of people all over the world are suffering from AUD. The disease can also adversely impact people who are close to the drinker, including partners, family members, colleagues, and employers. And women who are impregnated by a man who has AUD may be at risk of developing fetal alcohol syndrome. Several recovery approaches are used to treat AUD including detoxification, counselling, medications, group therapy and support services such as Alcoholics Anonymous or AA. In comparison to counseling performed by a professional psychiatrist, AA is more of a fellowship that creates a kinship between members that is very hard to replicate.
