High-functioning alcoholism is when people drink excessively and compulsively but nevertheless remain highly functional in their life. Many individuals continue to drink for years without ever realizing that they have a dependence on alcohol. High-level practitioners such as attorneys and surgeons form a significant portion of this group of people.
