The Impact of Alcohol Abuse

Alcohol misuse has far-reaching consequences on both physical and mental health. Excessive alcohol consumption can lead to liver disease, cardiovascular problems, neurological disorders, and an increased risk of accidents and injuries. Moreover, alcohol misuse often co-occurs with mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, and substance use disorders.


Statistics from the NIAAA reveal the scale of the problem:

Approximately 25% of adults report binge drinking or heavy alcohol use in the past month.

Alcohol-related liver disease is the cause of over 22,000 deaths each year.

Alcohol plays a significant role in almost 50% of deaths from motor vehicle accidents.
