What to Know About Alcohol Addiction in Vermont
Alcohol addiction, also called alcohol use disorder (AUD), occurs when a person can no longer control their drinking at a healthy level, often due to the appearance of withdrawal symptoms when alcohol is not present in the body.
Typical withdrawal symptoms from alcohol can include:
- Depression or anxiety
- Anger or confusion
- Difficulty sleeping
At its worst, alcohol withdrawal symptoms can lead to delirium tremens, a condition where people can suffer from seizures or fever and require medical intervention. Withdrawal is not the only danger associated with AUD. Each year, alcohol contributes to an increased rate of fatal traffic accidents, violence-related injuries, and preventable falls and other physical harm. Learn more about alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
