Alcoholism is an epidemic in society today, and is a problem facing many in Nantucket, MA. Alcohol is in fact a drug, the most commonly used and widely abused in the world. Alcohol addiction causes many problems, and people that abuse alcohol are more likely to become violent, struggle with their career and have problems in their relationships. Alcoholism can literally destroy your life.

Consuming alcohol is a common and acceptable practice in Nantucket. The problem with alcohol addiction and alcoholism begins when consumption crosses the line from moderate drinking, to having to consume alcohol to avoid feeling bad or to feel comfortable in social situations. Alcohol addiction and alcoholism may be triggered by an individual's environment, the people he's associating with, etc. Whatever the case may be, if alcohol is being used in excess and an individual doesn't have enough control to put down that drink despite the consequences, there is a problem.

It may seem easier to pretend that nothing is wrong, but the longer a person continues his addictive behavior the worse off he will be in the long run.

  • A significant amount of animal research has reported that rodent infants are susceptible to the reinforcing effects of alcohol; scientists have also noted that when rodents are exposed to alcohol in infancy, it can affect their responsiveness to alcohol later in life.
  • A study of 10,000 patients in both in-patient and outpatient alcohol treatment found that the 90% who attended AA meetings at least weekly and took part in aftercare for one year were able to abstain from the use alcohol at all during that year.
  • New brain scan research shows that alcohol affects decision-making and judgment by reducing activity in the frontal lobes, where such functions reside; it appears that prior alcohol induced impaired function of these same brain areas leads to alcohol dependence, making it almost impossible for the person to exert conscious will over whether they can stop drinking or not in the absence of treatment.
