Alcohol is usually used to relax, celebrate, and socialize with people. However, when someone drinks excessively or uses it to cope with stress or to avoid problems it might lead to alcohol use disorder. Alcohol use disorder is a situation where alcohol has gone past just a fun time treat and moved to a necessity for a person. This can create serious physical and psychological problems. Since alcohol use varies among people, it’s necessary to identify general symptoms that indicate a problem like when drinking interferes with responsibilities at home, school, or work. Age, family history, and how much or how often a person drinks are important things to consider when evaluating someone’s relationship with alcohol. There are NY AA meetings that are organized to help those diagnosed with AUD. AA meetings in Selden help provide the tools that a person trying to stay sober needs, giving them lessons on how to control their drinking. These meetings also help in ways that provide support and a place for the individual to work closely on themselves and share their struggles concerning alcoholism. This program encourages participation because the main belief is that everyone can heal, stay sober and lead a better life.
