Put a Stop to Your Addiction with Framingham Alcohol Rehab

Is Alcoholism inherited?

Research shows that the risk for developing alcoholism does indeed run in families. The genes a person inherits partially explain this pattern, but lifestyle is also a factor. Currently, researchers are working to discover the actual genes that put people at risk for alcoholism. Your friends, the amount of stress in your life, and how readily available alcohol is also are factors that may increase your risk for alcoholism, alcohol dependence or alcohol addiction.

But remember: Risk is not destiny. Just because alcoholism or alcohol dependence tends to run in families doesn't mean that a child of an alcoholic parent will automatically become an alcoholic too. Some people develop alcoholism even though no one in their family has a drinking problem. By the same token, not all children of alcoholic families get into trouble with alcohol. Knowing you are at risk is important, though, because then you can take steps to protect yourself from developing problems with alcohol or alcohol abuse.

The Definition of Alcoholism

Alcoholism is a disease in which the afflicted individual compulsively drinks alcohol. This intense craving results in the inability to manage control over the urge to drink. The more the individual uses alcohol, the stronger the body's physical dependence on it will become. The ensuing tolerance causes the need to drink greater amounts in order to achieve the same effects.

Alcoholism is recognized by the American Medical Association as a disease. In cases of alcoholism, the person will crave the substance in the same manner as someone starving from food or water. Individuals will typically continue their consumption regardless of the damage it is causing to their health, their relationships or their finances, as the compulsion is uncontrollable.
