  • Drinking alcohol with medications that are prescribed by a physician for a certain disorder, such as diabetes or a heart condition can be especially dangerous; it would be wise for a person to ask their doctor or a pharmacist whether they can drink safely while taking the medication.
  • The type of treatment one receives for their alcohol dependence problems depends on the severity of their alcohol problem and the resources that are available in their community. Treatment may include detoxification (the process of safely getting alcohol out of your system); taking doctor-prescribed medications, such as disulfiram (Antabuse∆) or naltrexone (ReVia), to help prevent a return (or relapse) to drinking once drinking has stopped; and individual and/or group counseling.
  • Are Beer and Wine Safer Than Liquor? No. Alcohol is alcohol. It can cause you problems no matter how you consume it. One 12-ounce bottle of beer or a 5-ounce glass of wine (about a half cup) has as much alcohol as a 1.5-ounce shot of liquor.
