Frequently Asked Questions

What is Alcoholism?

toggle content icon
Drinking can cross over into the realm of compulsive alcohol abuse as a person begins to drink more and more frequently than they intend to, finding it difficult to quit despite negative consequences to their health, career, or social relationships. Using alcohol as an escape from situations, thoughts, or emotions can also be a sign of problematic drinking, which can make the situation even worse. Continue to Article…

Is There a Safe Level of Drinking?

toggle content icon
An increasing number of treatment professionals maintain that any amount of drinking, no matter how small, may have adverse effects associated with it, despite widespread perceptions of potentially positive health effects. In general, 1 or 2 standard alcoholic drinks per week can be considered "safe" or, at least, not problematic—though even this amount is up for debate. Although there may not yet be an unequivocal answer to questions about the potential consequences of having even one drink, scientists are discovering more and more about this potent substance every day.

What is Considered Intoxicated?

While the same number of drinks can affect everyone differently, for public safety purposes, there is a clear legal distinction when it comes to alcohol intoxication. A person is considered legally impaired or "intoxicated" when their blood alcohol content (BAC) reaches 0.08% or higher. This is the legal limit for driving under the influence (DUI) as well as the defining BAC threshold for what is considered binge drinking (i.e., roughly 4-5 drinks within a 2-hour period to reach a BAC of .08).

Even if two people drink the same amount, they are likely to feel somewhat unique subjective effects as well as experience a differential impact on their respective health and wellbeing.
