Alcohol Addiction and Treatment

Chapters Capistrano, a leader in drug and alcohol rehabilitation, personalizes the alcohol addiction treatment recovery process to ensure you or your loved one received the best care while taking the opportunity to end dependence on alcohol, and refocus on a healthy, sober life.

General Information

Because alcohol is a psychoactive drug, it is a depressant that can cause a downward spiral in behavior. Alcohol contains Ethanol, which is most commonly found as a main ingredient in gasoline. It is regulated by each state throughout the country on an individual basis, production and distribution included.

The effects of alcohol consumption can be quite dangerous. A binge drinker may become drunk and face repercussions such as DUI, arrest, unruly behavior, decrease in motor skills and attention span, loss of inhibitions and poor judgment. But with long term, daily abuse of alcohol, there are more serious consequences. Abusing alcohol can have a negative impact on daily life.

Effects of Alcohol Abuse

With chronic alcohol abuse, you can suffer not only from deadly disease, but turmoil in the pleasantries of life like working and spending quality time with family and friends. It is not uncommon for fatal incidents to occur from over drinking as well. In fact, nearly 100,000 people die each year from alcohol related incidents or disease. The medical ramifications of alcohol addiction include heart disease, liver disease, stroke, cancer and dementia; alcohol can cause problems to almost every organ in your body.
