West Burlington is a city in Des Moines County, Iowa. A fraction of the city’s small population struggle with alcohol dependence. Alcohol dependence is when an individual is physically and or mentally reliant on alcohol. People become dependent on drinking alcohol for many reasons. Alcohol has both a stimulating and sedating effect on humans. So many individuals use it as a coping tool to help handle life’s difficulties. Alcohol has also become a staple of social life. It is even considered “weird” if an individual refuses to drink while having fun on a “night out.” The easy accessibility and legality of drinking alcohol make it even easier for people to become reliant on it. However, a reliance on alcohol can ruin lives as excessive drinking over a prolonged period can lead to significant physical, psychological, social, and financial repercussions. Heavy drinking can potentially destroy an individual’s brain tissues and cells, impairing cognition and memory. Thankfully, there are several intervention techniques that can be used to prevent an individual who depends on alcohol from hitting “rock bottom.” Alcoholics Anonymous, or AA, is one of them. Its counseling sessions, known as AA meetings, are one-hour long and are led by senior members who overcame alcohol addiction through the AA program.
