Find AA meetings in Charleston, Illinois

Home to Eastern Illinois University, Charleston has a history of alcohol addiction. Many individuals turn to alcohol as an escape mechanism from the pressures of life. Unfortunately, drinking alcohol compulsively is likely to lead to some serious consequences. Alcohol is a central nervous system depressant and can have a harmful mental and physical effect on individuals who misuse it. Regulating alcohol intake is particularly difficult as it is legal and generally accepted in society. This has contributed to a high level of high-functioning alcoholism. High-functioning alcoholism is when people drink excessively and compulsively but remain functional in their day to day lives. Because they are still functional, many people continue to drink for years without ever realizing that they actually have a drinking problem. A significant portion of this group of people is high-level practitioners such as lawyers and doctors. According to the New York Times, half of the people who have alcohol use disorder (AUD) are highly functioning.
