  • How does alcohol affect a person? Alcohol affects every organ in the body. It is a central nervous system depressant that is rapidly absorbed from the stomach and small intestine into the bloodstream. Alcohol is metabolized in the liver by enzymes; however, the liver can only metabolize a small amount of alcohol at a time, leaving the excess alcohol to circulate throughout the body. The intensity of the effect of alcohol on the body is directly related to the amount consumed.
  • Treatment of diabetes by tight control of blood glucose levels is difficult in alcoholics, and both hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia are problems among those who drink.
  • About one-half of all fatal traffic crashes among those aged 18 to 24 involve alcohol.
  • An estimated 1.5 million of the estimated 2.3 million prison inmates meet the medical criteria for alcohol or drug abuse or addiction.
