Alcohol use disorder is a condition where individuals consume alcohol compulsively over a long period of time despite its bad consequences. An individual is diagnosed with AUD if they attain two to three of eleven criteria over a span of one year. Based on how many standards have been met, the severity of AUD might be mild, moderate, or extreme. Binge alcohol consumption, interpersonal problems, peer pressure, low self-esteem, exposure to violence, and easy access to alcohol, are some of the triggers of AUD. The disorder can also negatively influence people who are close to the drinker, such as family members, friends, spouses, business partners, and co-workers. Even females that are impregnated by a male with AUD might be in danger of acquiring fetal alcohol syndrome. Several recovery techniques are utilized to treat AUD including detoxification, counseling, medicines, and group support therapies such as Alcoholics Anonymous. Compared to professional counseling, Alcoholics Anonymous or AA is more of a fellowship that produces a kinship between its members that is difficult to replicate. Seabeck has implemented AA meetings in Seabeck to provide help for residents of its community who are suffering from AUD. These Alcoholics Anonymous Washington State meetings are listed on AlcoholicsAnonymous.com.
