Statistics about Alcohol Abuse Disorders
In the United States alcohol abuse is not a problem that should be taken lightly or overlooked. Here are some reasons why:
- Approximately 25% of patients seen by primary care physicians have an alcohol or drug problem (Jones, Knutson, & Haines, 2004).
- Between 20% and 50% of all hospital admissions are related to the effects of alcohol abuse or alcohol addiction (Greenfield & Hennessy, 2004; McKay, Koranda, & Axen, 2004; Miller, 2004).
- Between 24% and 31% of patients seen in the emergency room, and possibly as many as 50% of those patients who suffer severe injuries that require hospitalization, have an alcohol use disorder (D’Onofrio & Degutis, 2004).
- Substance abuse is the number one cause of preventable death in the United States, killing more people each year than any other preventable cause of death (Gold & Jacobs, 2005).
- Alcohol use disorders are the third leading cause of preventable death in the United States (Frieberg & Samset, 2005).
- Alcohol or illicit drug abuse is a factor in 50%-75% of all psychiatric admissions (Miller, 2005).
- Alcohol dependence is the second most common psychiatric disorder in the United States (Mariani & Levin, 2004).
- Between 40% and 60% of those who commit suicide were intoxicated at the time (Greenfield, 2007). One-third of suicide victims tested had evidence of alcohol and 10% had evidence of other drugs in their body at the time of their death (Karch, Cosby, & Simon, 2006).
- Approximately 10% of those individuals with a substance use disorder eventually commit suicide (Getzfeld, 2006).
- Fully 56% of all assaults in the United States are alcohol related (Dyehouse & Sommers, 1998).
- Globally, it is estimated that 200 million people, or 5% of the world’s population, have abused an illicit substance at least once (United Nations, 2006a).
- Although the United States makes up under 5% of the world’s population, by some estimates we consume 60% of the world’s illicit drugs (“Drug War Success Rates Challenged,” 2006).
- It is thought that 35% of men and 18% of women will develop some kind of substance use disorder at some point during their lives (Rhee et al., 2003).
Alcohol Rehab: Treatment and Services
There are essentially three different types of treatment available for alcohol rehabilitation. These are:
- Inpatient Treatment
- Outpatient Treatment
The first step for many people exhibiting signs of alcohol dependence is detoxification. This level of care is designed to help people withdrawal safely from alcohol, once a state of physical dependence has developed. As an important aspect of successful alcohol rehab, this layer of support helps people to establish a platform of abstinence but is not usually considered a full course of treatment without follow-up care.
Considered to be the most intensive form of alcohol rehab, inpatient treatment represents a residential aspect of the alcohol rehabilitation process. Varying in scope, most inpatient treatment settings help problem drinkers to develop the skills and coping mechanisms required to maintain sobriety. Other, more comprehensive, inpatient treatment centers (Such as the Authentic Recovery Center) offer clinical services designed to address the underlying causes that lead people to develop alcohol problems. This second type of inpatient rehab is often referred to as co-occurring disorders treatment, or dual diagnosis rehabilitation.
Outpatient treatment is a non residential form of alcohol rehab. Often required for problem drinkers who have had previously unsuccessful attempts at sobriety after detoxification, this level of care represents a stabilizing force for the newly sober alcoholic. In some situations, outpatient alcohol rehab can be effectively accessed after detox, but in most situations outpatient symbolizes a supportive aftercare services after residential treatment is completed.
